Today marks the last day of the first week of our annual pledge drive. We could operate quite comfortably if every one of our 2 million website visitors donated just $1. Will you pitch in to keep us around?

Many people have already donated, some very generously. Everyone here at the Monthly is deeply appreciative of you folks—you’re helping to keep us in business producing the kind of high-grade, farsighted journalism we are known for.

Also, if straight-up charity isn’t your thing, you can always subscribe!

Thanks.
