Maybe it's the way we are open to just about any progressive and even some libertarian and conservative voices.
If we've given you pause to think or smile or awakened you to something you were glad to learn about, please pay it back. We don't charge to access the site, but we really do depend upon your financial support to keep going. I've been able to push back by a few days the payment that was due the end of the month, but we still need another $450 to pay the bills, and then, we'll need at least $650 more by July 15th.
So please, if you haven't donated in a while or have never donated, please kick in what you can. It's really very urgent. I hate to keep asking, but it's essential.
