Kind and generous Derek S. sent us 50 smackers — donated it right here — with this explanation of what motivated him to:

Well said, D-Man. Many thanks for helping out in the NRO Spring Webathon. And those of you who dwell in these parts and have yet to wet NR’s beak, to show a token of appreciation for all the free and powerful and cool and brainy commentary — by Williamson, Hanson, McCarthy, Goldberg, Charen, Malkin, Lowry, Ponnuru, Johnson, Nordlinger, French, and dozens more — that comes at you 24 /7 like a maxed-out firehose? Reflect on what Derek and Charlie have to say, and then . . . pony up.
