The Nation is hurting for $. They are asking for help. Any amount would help.

3. I read The Nation
have given to CommonDreams, and Alan Grayson in the last few days. Will try to scare up a little something for this outstanding magazine when I get my next paycheck.

6. Why do DUers doubt me? Here is the e-mail

IF you have $18 take the E subscription: https://subscribe.thenation.com/pubs/NN/NAN/keypm1.jsp?cds_page_id=94338&cds_mag_code=NAN&id=1320617897057&lsid=13101618170027389&vid=1&cds_response_key=I11BSTOO1


I got an e-mail that doubted The nation needed $. I must have an ulterior motive. Here is the mail we got:

Freedom of the Press Belongs to Those Who Own the Press


Dear Nation Friend:

Cynical? Perhaps. But true.

And as the protesters of Occupy Wall Street voice their frustrations just a few blocks south of our offices and across the country, were facing our own very real challenges. Its simple: because of the economy, donations to our Nation Associates program are down $200,000 for 2011.

So that is why I am writing. It's up to me -- and you -- and every person who understands how important The Nation is to free speech and political discourse -- to support The Nation Associates today.

This is no time to pull punches, scale back or otherwise take our eye off the ball. Not with a presidential election heating up and so much at stake. We must make up this shortfall before we sit down to plan our Election 2012 coverage for the coming year.

You and I care about free speech and no-holds-barred reporting. But in our corporatist society, it's not guaranteed. It's not free. It never has been. It belongs to people who are willing to fight for it...and yes, pay for it.

We don't want to scale back our robust print and web coverage -- including benching some of the most courageous investigative reporters in journalism today. That would be unacceptable, especially at a point when an independent political voice is critical in the lead-up to the 2012 elections.

I know times are tough and money is tight. But we ask that you make a gift to The Nation Associates today, letting us know you stand with us.

The Nation and our nation depend on you.

Sincerely,

Teresa Stack
President, The Nation

P.S. Do you have any lefty relics gathering dust in your closet? Why not donate them to our fourth annual, entirely one-of-a-kind "No Time to Pull Punches" online auction, set to launch November 12th? How about a week's stay in your vacation home? Business services? Theatre tickets? We already have dozens of truly unique items in the auction catalog.

7. I subscribe and dug up a few dollars for this fundraising.
The editor, Katrina Vandeheuval, (sp?) is on TV a lot; she's terrific, smart, well-spoken. Very good analytical thinker. Love her.
