THANKS to the folks who hit the tipjar. Your thank-you notes were delayed by the hack attack, but will be forthcoming.

In answer to someone who asked if a donation would ensure that I’d keep blogging: No. InstaPundit is a labor of love. If it stops being fun, I’ll stop doing it. No danger of that happening anytime soon, but no guarantees, either. Like Tom Sawyer and the fence, if I start feeling obliged to do it, it’ll stop being fun.
