MY CONTRIBUTION IS A: First membership contribution
MEMBERSHIP THANK-YOU GIFTS:
Hopefully NPR will get the clue here and do something similar on their next pledge drive: “…if we get $1 million in the next hour, we promise to sack Cokie Roberts and the entire simpering-Republican crew of Planet Money!” […] Every time I hear a Planet Money commenter on NPR, I feel like I’m listening to a completely earnest version of John Hodgman’s “expert” from The Daily Show— pompously condescending and, if not actually wrong, then misleadingly simplistic to the point of stupidity.
Either one of those offers tied to such a guarantee would net $100 from me. Instantly.
