Wondering where you've been today, David!

Did you see where JT has offered to match all contributions received
today, up to $1000?  He has just requalified the "received today" part
just a bit.  He is asking people to at least *pledge* today and then, of
course, followup on the pledge as quickly as possible.  The intention is
to get people to avoid putting this off until ... who knows when.  If
contributing sounds like a good idea (and believe me, the response I've
gotten shows you'd be in excellent company), then just DO IT!  If you
don't have your checkbook with you at work today, write a note on the
back of your hand to do it tonight when you get home.

I have an idea that *may* make it easier for David to tabulate
contributions for the purpose of JT's matching offer.  If you can pledge
today (or if  you have already contributed to this campaign), send an
email to (NOTE!!!  Do NOT, repeat, do NOT send this
to the lists!!!) with the subject line as follows:  "I pledge $xx for" and substitute xx with the dollars (or U.S. dollars
approximate equivalent).  Assuming David can sort or filter his email by
subject, it should be a rather quick tabulation on his part.  Remember,
send this confirmation of your pledge to , NOT to the
