Dear friends,

I am going to make this one real short.  First, I am only addressing this to those of you who are, shall we say, financially comfortable.  Second, this is in no way a fund-raiser.  We agreed that these would only happen quarterly and we are nowhere near the middle of Fall.  Third, I will simply state the following: things are rapidly getting very dangerous in the Ukraine and even much more so in Syria.  Yet, right now instead of producing analyses, I am struggling to pay my bills.  So, IF you can, now would be an ideal time to help me.  If you are also struggling, then just say a prayer for me.

Many thanks in advance for either form of support,

The Saker
