  • Repairing the Family
    By Jay Grummel Earlier this month I wrote about fond families, however the holidays are made up of many different types of families.

  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]

Fred’s fight for funds remains multifaceted

As a Fred Thompson supporter and one of the editors of Blogs for Fred Thompson (the blog that set up the Fred’s Giving Day Web site), I’d like to correct Alex Merced’s inaccurate portrayal of our efforts [“Politics’ dot-com dollars,” Nov. 27].

The Fred’s Giving Day site was not the gathering point for all donations. The majority of supporter donations were made through Thompson’s official Web site (, as well as through donation widgets embedded on personal Web sites or Web blogs. The BFFT Web site raised $9,000 alone.

Merced also points out that many of the pledges were supposedly from other campaigns as a “joke.” If Merced is correct that some pledges were in fact spam, he would no doubt be talking about supporters of Congressman Ron Paul. Such juvenile tactics from those backing the Ron Paul are commonplace and widely known across the Internet.

Mr. Merced should get his facts straight before undermining the efforts of those supporting other candidates. Failure to do so makes both Mr. Merced and his candidate look foolish
