Notes From the Editor &
Britt Leach

Yes, readers, we're in our third year now and are again including a PayPal Donate button on the site. If you make a donation, how would your gift be utilized? A good question. Well, to pay for the devices that allow for the creative arrangement of pixels, for web hosting, for wine—never more than $7.99 $6.99, $5.99 per bottle is our pledge. We also pledge an absence of advertising. And, yes, we realize that advertising provides revenue but feel that there's too much of that. Too much advertising out there—all the time—and we want our site to provide a respite from all that. No trash, no flash. That little orange button above is a PayPal device—if you are so moved. Thank you.
