WAIS Wednesday Approaches: November 28th! (John Eipper, USA, 11/21/18 7:53 am)

Greetings, WAISers:

Faithful colleagues know that since 2012, the Wednesday after Thanksgiving is WAIS Wednesday.  It's the time to remember the world's oldest on-line Forum (that would be WAIS) with a financial gift.  This year's WW is November 28th--one week from today.

First, a confession:  In recent months I've been very lax about passing the hat.  This oversight, together with the dreadful performance of US financial markets, means that we are poorer than we've been in years.  Please help!

The good news is that there is still time to join the 2018 Honor Roll.  Send checks (payable to WAIS) to John Eipper, Goldsmith Hall, Adrian College, Adrian MI 49221 USA, or take advantage of the convenient PayPal option:  donate@waisworld.org

Suggested donations are $100 (or more) for WAISers who can afford it, but any amount is welcome.  I proudly remind everyone that WAIS has been 100% member-supported since 1965.  No advertising or special-interest money clouds our judgment!

So how about a goal of 10 new donors by WAIS Wednesday?  That means YOU and just nine other WAISers.  What better way to show thanks?

Pax et lux.  Below is our Honor Roll through November 21st.  A WAIS-sized thanks to you all.

  • A Friendly Reminder from Kitchener and Eipper: WAIS Wednesday! (John Eipper, USA 11/26/18 6:47 AM)

    The gales of November came early this year (with apologies to Gordon Lightfoot), but this has not deterred the intrepid folks of the US Mail Service.  A blizzard-size WAIS thanks to eminent historian Stanley G. Payne, whose generous donation showed up minutes ago.  On behalf of all WAISdom, Stanley, we thank you.



    There are still 48 hours before WAIS Wednesday--please give!


    1.  via snail-mail to John Eipper, Goldsmith Hall, Adrian College, Adrian MI 49221 USA


    2.  via PayPal to donate@waisworld.org


    Remember Kitchener's plea.  Prof. Payne has rallied to the Cardinal and Gold (WAISdom's official colors).  Won't you join him?  Pax et lux.

    • WAIS Wednesday is Here! (John Eipper, USA 11/28/18 1:20 PM)

      Beloved WAISers, WAIS Wednesday wanes, woefully, and we are still five donors short of our goal:


      1) via regular mail to John Eipper, Goldsmith Hall, Adrian College, Adrian MI 49221 USA


      2) PayPal to donate@waisworld.org


      Don't wait!  Wednesdays are also my busiest day at the College, so I must be brief.  An updated Honor Roll will appear later this week.



      Many thanks.  And now we'll return to our topic du jour:  cursing.
