Giving Tuesday is an apt time to buy us a round (of journalism) if you value this site's daily stream of news, features, commentary and videos.
Through another topsy-turvy year of urgent developments, we've continued a nine-year tradition of creating and aggregating coverage to help inform, entertain and enlighten. It's heartening to see rising readership and words of appreciation.
Membership contributions also are uplifting, so we shake our cup like this occasionally as a reminder that membership for $3 a month or more is a meaningful way to support independent journalism. This is among original reporting and column last week:
Non-corporate newsgathering needs community support, in addition to ads. Your donation helps us post uninhibited reporting and commentary without a subscription paywall. It also makes you eligible for monthly rewards, such as $20 Amazon gift certificates that three members won this week.
Thanks for valuing our public service and confirming that it makes a difference, particularly this tumultuous year.
