A new necessarily quiet-for-the-time-being independent told me that he wanted to make a big contribution to the cause. He asked what do I really need or want. Knowing he was flush at the moment and was intimating he was thinking monetary contribution, my snap answer was $12,755 so that everybody who paid into the Indies Defense Fund for the Battle of San Antonio could be made whole just like those who contributed directly to Debbie and Wayne were. I’ll be a monkey’s uncle if that individual didn’t cut a check on the spot.
I have a list of every contributor to the fund and the amount donated that was made through my blog’s donate page. I don’t have an address for anybody. Please, everyone who contributed for the Cook defense through my blog’s donate page (or mailed one in directly to me) e-mail me with your name and address where I can send a check to.
Some have stated they would pledge the money to some other worthy sub purpose if they ever got it back. Still, I need to write you a check; you are free to do whatever you want with it. But, in order to save me (and us by extension) unwarranted taxation I need to administer this fund in that fashion. If you wish for the money to remain in the fund itself, you can also let me know by email. In a reasonable time – once I’ve heard from most everyone – I’ll report on what remains in the defense fund, and will therefore be available should the need arise.
Personally, I think it would be perfect poetic justice for you all to get your contributions back to use as you see fit; so don’t be shy. I look forward to the day when I can tell you who it was that I wrote a check to you on behalf of. Poetic justice is beautiful thing.
So, email me your address.
