Today is the second to last day the Monthly is running is fundraising drive. Thanks to all of you who’ve contributed already.

If you’re a regular reader of this site and the print magazine, you know that the Washington Monthly offers the kind of reporting and analysis the country needs, breaking big stories well ahead of major outlets.

Print and online ads only cover part of the magazine’s overall expenses; we depend on contributions from readers to keep the Monthly running.

This year contributors who pledge $150 or more will receive something interesting:

a hardcover copy of Monthly founder Charles Peters’ latest book, Lyndon B. Johnson, individually signed by the author. It’s the latest in “The American Presidents” series. The New Yorker says it is “illuminating” and “a resonant portrait of a man of prodigious political abilities, who was driven, but ultimately undone, by his temperamental flaws.”

Please know that every tax-deductible dollar you send us helps to keep the lights on and the server up. Just click here here to send a secure online donation.

I hope we can count on your support.

Thank you.
