Down with this sort of thing…

Newt gets quote of the week (subs needed):

Moves are afoot to brand the SS Nomadic as unacceptably Protestant. Research confirms that this entirely non-sectarian campaign is fully justified. The Nomadic was commandeered as an allied troop-carrier during both World Wars, thus supporting the Anglo-American imperialist hegemony. She was propelled by two screws, which is clearly a one-sided tribute to prison officers; and her last duty as a tender was serving the Queen Elizabeth. Down with this sort of thing etc.

Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.

While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
