Your support is more than appreciated at Under The LobsterScope…

In 2004 I started Under The LobsterScope during the election season. For six years I have presented the best liberal-oriented material I could find and my own comments on politics and the arts (and a few other subjects).

I need your support to keep this blog going… when I started I was employed and well-paid, but, as a result of the Bushified economy, I have been more-or-less unemployed for three years. Spending five or six hours a day on a blog is actually an expensive process – when I’m working here, I’m not out hustling freelance jobs or looking for real employment. So I’m asking if you will donate at least $5.00 to Under the LobsterScope. If you do, you get my picture font,Bill’s Universal Symbols (worth $29.95) , absolutely FREE OF CHARGE.

That’s it. $5.00 or more and I will send you this font (partial sample below) which is not available ANYWHERE ELSE (except, of course, on my UTF Type Foundry site.).

Even a small donation of $1 or $2 helps (although $5 helps a whole lot more.) The amount is up to you. We accept contributions through PayPal and the credit/debit cards shown below.

Remember…All contributors of $5.00 or more receive a copy of my Picture Font, Bill’s Universal Symbols (I send you the versions for both Macs and PCs, plus a handy keyboard chart). As I said, I regularly sell this font for $29.95.

This offer is for a very limited time. Come July, Bill’s Universal Symbols comes off the Free list.

I appreciate those of you who have come on board every time I’ve put up a new Free Font and hope more of you will join in. Previous donors have received two Free Fonts, Bill’s Cast O’Characters and Bill’s Century Marks. Since several have come back again, it is clear what a good deal this is.

So please click on the “Donate” button below:
