The WaMo Fiscal Cliff

Since we’ve had months and months of alarms and threats over the “fiscal cliff,” producing today’s less than scintillating (and yet to be entirely resolved) anticlimax, let me give you a real and definite deadline: after midnight, donations to the Washington Monthly won’t be deductible on your 2012 tax returns. Much as I might thunder at Congress, future fiscal deals probably won’t change that.

Wish I had the technological wherewithal to put up a countdown clock, but you’ll just have to take this final notice to heart: please make your donation now and then celebrate the New Year with the secure knowledge you’ve done something significant and enduring to end 2012.
