It is my unpleasant task, every decade or so, to hold an irregular Confined Space fundraiser.
As you all know, I am retired and spend much of my free time writing Confined Space. While I am happy to contribute the labor (it keeps me out of trouble), there are occasional expenses: web hosting and related services, a few useful newsletter subscriptions, occasional meetings and conferences — and now, it’s time for a new computer. This one was born during the Obama administration, when Donald Trump was still a reality show host, and when many of you were still children. It’s now on its last legs. I doubt it will last until the President’s Day sales or the next Black Friday/Cyber Monday.
As always, if you don’t have anything to spare, please don’t contribute. If you are one of my regular monthly contributors, thank you and your job is done. If you’d rather contribute to an important Senate or House race, do that instead. If you hate everything I write, feel free to leave hate-mail in the comments below (along with a large contribution).
In return, I promise not to send you yet another T-Shirt or hat. You’ll have to settle for my eternal gratitude– which takes up less space in your closet.
And I promise not to have another fundraiser for at least two years. And I’m not tax-deductible.
