Yes, it's a weekend special edition -- five news stories, five commentaries -- for several reasons:
First, we have a holiday break coming next Thursday (and possibly Friday), so I figure it's a good idea to get some content out there on other off days to keep you stocked up.
Secondly, we may have some shorter than usual editions between now and the new year. That period is known for its "slow news days" and many of our commentary sources pretty much just shut down during the period as well.
And, of course, we're continuing to do our year-end fundraising. Trying not to be TOO intrusive with it, but remember: We only get paid if you pony up, so we have to ask now and then.
Earlier this month, reader Steven R Linnabary remarked on Facebook: "I haven't needed a daily newspaper in at least a decade since discovering RRND!"
That's the kind of thing I love to hear. After all, we ARE "the freedom movement's daily newspaper." That's what we do. Every non-holiday weekday, we put together a digest of the most important news stories and the most compelling political commentaries we can find for the edification of libertarian readers.
If we accomplish our goal, we save you time and money. And then we ask you to send us what you think our publication is worth in terms of those savings and that value.
Have YOU replaced your old daily newspaper with RRND or FND? If so, how about returning value for value and helping us keep this up? We've been around in one form or another (Libernet, Freedom News Daily, Rational Review News Digest) since 1991; RRND proper will celebrate its 12th anniversary next Tuesday. We deliver the goods, consistently and over the long term. But we need your support to keep doing so. Kick in at:
We'll be back with the regular daily edition on Monday -- and in case you don't see another personal note between now and the new year, HAPPY HOLIDAYS from all of us at RRND/FND!
Yours in liberty,
