This morning, the Monthly‘s chief political blogger, Ed Kilgore posted personal appeal about the importance of contributions. Thanks to all of you who responded, both too his message and earlier.

The pledge drive is ending today, so you’ll no longer have to read these reminders (well, at least not until Christmas). For those of you who’ve contributed, please know you have our most sincere thanks. For those who need one last reminder, this is it: your tax-deductible donation can make a big difference.

Your donation will not only help the magazine, but also help support this blog.

While we already have print and online ads, this only covers part of our overall expenses, which means that we depend on contributions from readers to stay up and humming.
So for the last time, I hope we can count on your support. Click here to help out. You can donate online, through PayPal, or through the mail.

Thanks very much everyone.

Our ideas can save democracy... But we need your help! Donate Now!
