Our summer member drive has started, and generous readers are sending in both donations and comments.
July 23rd update: 16 new sustainers, and 15 one-time donors. New sustaining donations range from $5 to $25 a month. One-time donations range from $60 to $500.
Our goal for this drive is 100 new sustainers by July 31. One-time donations are always welcome too.
