A blog for better streets and public spaces in Portland, Maine.

Wednesday, February 1, 2012


In anticipation of the upcoming Maine caucuses, it appears that a certain millionaire who's stingy on his taxpaying has started buying anti-Obama fundraising ads on my blog.

Now, none of my readers are actually stupid enough to donate their money to a jackass millionaire.

But here's the thing: if you were to click his ads, you'll be withdrawing $1 or $2 at a time out of his campaign account, giving it to Google, with a substantial commission for me (disclosure: I also own some Google stock in my retirement savings account, so, I have a double self-interest in this scheme).

You can think of it as an anti-donation from corporate Washington lobbyists, or you can think of it as a pro-donation to blogging for better streets and sidewalks in Portland, Maine. Either way, please support our generous advertisers — click their campaign ads as frequently as possible!
