Thank you all for your words of support following my announcement of cancellation of the N/D18 issue, and for your support by generating new articles when I requested them.

I had mentioned that my father was taken care of in hospice care by Calvary Hospital in the Bronx. I recently learned that my sister - whose birthday is this coming Friday - is running a "birthday fundraiser" on Facebook for Calvary; it has only a week left. She has asked that, in lieu of gifts, people donate to Calvary through this fundraiser. Unfortunately, Facebook is its usual walled garden, and only members can donate (well, others can, too - by creating a Facebook account).

Like my sister, I believe in their mission; I know how seriously they take it, and how effective they are at doing it. Before my father's stay there, I had no reason to believe their radio advertising any more than any other advertising; now, I can say that every ad that I have heard does no more than tell it like it is.

I would therefore take it as a favor if those of you who are Facebook members - or willing to be borged into the walled garden collective - would visit and make a donation to Calvary Hospital through my sister's fundraiser.

Yeah... no apologies ever necessary. What you do is provide a gift to the community. Take time and see you next Jump.
