Quote of the day (a coda to yesterday's message):
I can see that it will work in practice. But would it work in theory?
-- A British joke about the French (and a Downsize DC joke about politics)
I'm on the radio again today, and you can listen. See the details below my signature.
Order of the Day:
We're moments away from eclipsing our recruitment and messages-to-Congress numbers for last month, with half of March still to go.
Meanwhile, Congress is busy, doing so many things in so many different directions, that we're finding it hard to keep up. But . . .
We have to pause for yet another announcement from our sponsors. Or something like that.
We didn't raise much money to pay many bills yesterday, and if you can't pay the bills you can't save the world. So we have to hit it again today. Sorry. That's just how it is.
One contribution of $7,000 to $10,000 would do it, plus buy some more advertising. We know there are people on this list with that capacity, quietly watching our progress. Now would be a good time for one of them to step forward. They could do so here.
70 contributions of $100 would also do it. Or,
140 at $50
280 at $25
700 at $10
1,400 at $5
The above numbers are rough estimates only, and do not conform to Sarbanes-Oxley federal accounting requirements, but then, neither does the federal budget.
Anything you could give would help. You can contribute here.
Thanks for being a DC Downsizer, and don't forget about the media notice below my signature, or the contribution links above.
P.S. Don't forget: I will be on the radio again today for my routine Friday appearance with Jerry Hughes.
Each week, the discussion gets more interesting. After a few consistent weeks on a show, you get past the basic questions and soundbite answers. Some weeks, I feel like I'm exposing too much of myself. Listen to me take personal risk. Listen to Jerry and I have fun.
Besides, this show is a great opportunity to spread the DC Downsizer message. Please support it, not only by listening, but also by calling-in or sending an email.
