Arthur Silber is a Los Angeles-area blogger who is hitting some hard times because of the transit strike. While I don't see eye-to-eye with him on many things, I know that I've had hard times in my life, and people have stepped up and helped me through. I can't do less.
He says he needs a thousand or so (more like two, from reading it) to get his car running again, so along with a number of other bloggers, I'm running his PayPal button, and asking my regular readers to click through and donate a few bucks (or more). A number of L.A. based bloggers and I may also use this as an excuse to get together and in so doing raise some more funds for him, if they're needed.
