Blogger Floods Readers With Money Requests

Blogger and pundit Craig Crawford did something unusual this morning. First off, he accidentally flooded his readers with requests to donate to his Trail Mix site. Three messages later, we got the picture: He needs dough to keep his operation afloat.

“Sorry, it’s time to pass around the Trail Mix offering plate,” he wrote in a “shameless” message. “Our blog is independent of any corporate entity, news media organization, SuperPac, or ‘The Man’ of any kind.

Major programming glitch. Won’t happen again. But here’s how to unsubscribe if you don’t want to risk it: UNSUBSCRIBE Trail Mix Alerts http://tinyurl.com/97rjjs8″
