Benjamin and a Compliment

The outstanding Elisabeth B sends a generous $100 contribution in response to our soon-to-end Webathon (or maybe it was in response Rich Lowry’s Mash Note?). Thanks for the real help (cash is very real) and for the inspiring note that came with the generosity:

Quality thinking, quality writing, diversity of conservative viewpoints, prompt attention to the issues of the day, farsighted attention to the issues of tomorrow — what more could I ask for? Thank you for all your hard work! I read you every day!

Hey Elisabeth, when it comes to “quality,” that’s what defines you, and all our supporters. Quality people. God bless them. And if you haven’t yet, become one of them (and be blessed!) by donating here.
