Dear readers,

It’s a “web-only Friday” — 20 news stories, 35 commentaries, and five podcast/video links await your attention at:

http://rationalreview.com

Thanks to RRS, WSS3, DH, PD, EL, KM, and DH, whose generous contributions over the last week bring our year-end fundraiser total to $3423.50 versus our goal of $5,000.

Fundraiser-wise, it’s the time when many outfits would be (and probably are) quacking at you about how they will have to close their doors unless you cough up — with a little over a week remaining in the year, we’re still less than 70% of the way to our target.

I’m not going to play that kind of alarmist game with you. We have no plans to shut down. On the other hand, we do like to eat, so I hope you’ll help us across the finish line at:

Rational Review News Digest turns 15 tomorrow — our first issue came out on Monday, December 23, 2002, after our predecessor publication, Freedom News Daily (which we’ve since helped resurrect and now produce again on behalf of Liberty International as a “rebrand” of RRND) suddenly ceased publication without notice the Thursday before that. Happy birthday to us!

And, of course, Christmas is on Monday and other holidays have recently passed, are on their way, etc. Happy holidays to you from RRND/FND editor Steve Trinward and myself!

Many of our commentary sources, as well as the general news cycle, tend toward a “holiday break,” so we usually produce shorter-than-usual editions during the week between Christmas and the New Year. That will likely be the case this year. But we’ll be around 🙂

Yours in liberty,
Tom Knapp
