Dear readers,

It’s a web-only Friday — more than 20 news stories, more than 30 commentaries, and more than 15 audio/video links await your reading/listening/viewing pleasure at:

http://rationalreview.com

Thanks to DH, DM, PD, EL, WSS3 for their monthly subscriber donations and one-time donations totaling $80. That brings our year-end fundraiser total to $582.50 versus our goal of $5,000.

I like setting “mini-goals” on these long hard slogs, but I’m never sure how ambitious to get. I think I’ll aim high this time … can we make it to $1,000 by Monday?

Yes, we can. Whether or not we DO is up to you.

Rational Review News Digest is coming up on 16 years, and is past the 4,000 daily edition count, in its current incarnation. It actually goes back to the mid-1990s as Freedom News Daily (which went under in late 2002, spawning RRND from its staff, then came back, then became a rebrand of RRND circa 2004) and, before that, to 1991 as Libernet.

Steve and I, the two remaining editors, have been at this for more than 20 years in my case and, I think, close to 20 years in his. We’ve done our best to deliver a quality daily newsletter that keeps libertarians informed. And our revenue model has always been “if you value it, pay us what you think it’s worth.”

Many of you have supported us generously and for a long time. THANK YOU!

Many others haven’t ever gotten around to it. Now would be a great time to do so, and thank you in advance if THIS is the weekend you do. We’ve got various support options available (but no operators standing by) at:

I can’t promise a weekend special edition this week — I don’t get to concerts very often, but managed to score tickets for Bob Dylan’s Friday night appearance in St. Augustine, Florida (he’s been on my “must-see” list for decades and the hour is getting late for him and, possibly, me) — but I’ll see if I can manage it. Otherwise, we’ll be back on Monday with the regular web and social media editions. Have a great weekend!

Yours in liberty,
Tom Knapp
