Dear readers,

It’s a “web-only Friday” at Rational Review News Digest / Freedom News Daily — more than 20 news stories, more than 30 commentaries, and 15 or so audio/video links await you at:

Thanks to KM and JJJ! Their monthly “subscribing contributor” payments totaling $15 bring our year-end fundraiser to $270 against our goal of $5,000.

Imagine, if you will, sad violin music playing in the background, and perhaps a starving child staring into a video camera, as I lay out the plight of the freedom movement’s daily newspaper.

OK, don’t do that. Just remember that we are a reader-supported publication, that you are a reader, and that if you value what we do, the best way to help us keep doing it is to send a little money. We try to keep the appeals light for most of the year, and then come at you hard in the last quarter with a substantial, but not greedy, goal (if we make that goal, our total gross take for the year will STILL be, offhand, less than $10k).

Why choose this very moment in particular, rather than some other moment, to return value for value? OK, back to the sad violin music …

My mother does not, so far as I know, need an operation, but I do (at least I think a needle biopsy qualifies as an “operation”). Not sure how much that is going to cost, and thanks to my spouse I can’t complain about my insurance situation, but I do know that a profusion of “co-pays” for things like liver ultrasounds and echo cardiograms and cardiac stress tests and consultations with specialists is eating into my budget this last month or so, that it’s not done doing so yet, and that it’s also the slow time of year for Steve’s “day job.” So yeah, right about now would be especially helpful to both of us. Just sayin’ …

We’ve been doing this since 1991, and on pretty much an entirely “donations from readers” basis, over the course of more than 4,000 daily editions, since 2002. You can pay us whatever you consider our work worth to you at …

… and we’ll be back with the regular email and social media editions on Monday. Have a great weekend!

Yours in liberty,
