We beg 1,000 pardons, but we forgot to thank all of the weekend donors in yesterday's headlines — and now so many more readers have been moved to give that we have a blockbuster honor role of benefactors to thank. Here goes!

Thanks, Charlie (and we'll pass along your support for "criminal mischief" to our boss)! Thanks, Bob! Thanks, Sarah (dedicated to Zach Endres)! Thanks, Brad! Thanks, Michael! Thanks, Samuel! Thanks, David! Thanks, Stephen!

We'll still be accepting donations through the end of the year, so get crackin'! (Thanks!)

Here's the news roundup from yesterday — alas, it is thin. Did anyone work on Dec. 26?:

    • Electric buses move hundreds of people at a fraction of the cost of diesel- or gas-powered buses. Certainly that should be taken into account when pricing electricity, no? (NY Post)
