Needs Your Help to Keep Going

Help Put Us Over the Top

Since our Saturday audience is smaller compared to the rest of the week, the fact that you're reading this is probably because you're part of the hard core – the people who come to every day, just to check in and see what's up.

This fundraiser has been a real hair-raiser – and it looks like it's going to be that way right up to the very end. It still isn't clear to me that we're going to make our goal – so I just want to urge all you hardcore peace-lovers to give us that extra little push that will put us over the top.

Look, I know we've been hectoring you for a solid week. But, you know what? It's all for a good cause. Your contribution is very well-used – and not a dime is wasted on folderol, you can be sure of that. is bringing you the news and views that are downplayed by the "mainstream" media – and we are getting our message out to a steadily increasing number of readers.

We just need a little bit more to make our goal and ensure that there are absolutely no cutbacks in the level of coverage we provide on a daily basis. It's been a wild and wooly ride this past week, and we've just got a few more miles to go. Help us make our journey a successful one – contribute today.

Make your 100% tax-deductible contribution today.

As of Friday night, 789 of you gave $46,911 toward the $60,000 needed to keep running for the next quarter. We are getting within sight of our goal, please help.
