Thanks to the swift and generous replies of nearly 600 readers, the Observer’s 1988 fundraising campaign has passed the half-way mark. We’ve received $28,692 in money and pledges so far; plus, from one reader who was especially moved by Molly Ivins’ plea on our behalf, a personally delivered supply of eggs, onions, and honey for the staff. Thanks, too, to the readers who added words of praise and thoughtful suggestions and comments. This is an encouraging start, but to reach our $54,000 goal we’ll need the help of all of our friends this time. Postmaster: If undeliverable, send Form 3579 to The Texas Observer, P.O.
