Hey Guys! We'll be down for a few days to take advantage of a long weekend for a much needed break.

Don't let Trump take over your 4th of July celebration! (He'll probably get rained out anyway if the gods are with us. But he'll likely be able to see himself in the mirror nonetheless. So there's that. Tanks, but no tanks, Mr. President!)

We're back at the top of the week. But, until then, if you haven't tossed a few dollars in the tip jar of late, please consider doing so to help us get some early speed as we barrel towards the impossible 2020 election season, when we'll need all the help we can get!

It's tough out here for everyone in the media "biz", as I'm sure you've noticed, but damned near impossible for independent progressive journalists, trouble-makers and muckrakers like us. So anything and everything you can do to help us keep going is very much appreciated!

One time donations are great. Monthly sustaining subscriptions of any amount you like are even greater...At least until we too can figure out how to scam the National Park Service out of their entrance fee funds!

Stay safe. Be cool. And try to love one another --- right now! Or at least at some point over this holiday weekend... --- Brad
