Thank you…

As many of our regular readers will know I’ve been away from Slugger for these last few weeks for family reasons. I have a lot of a people to thank. Not least Paul Evans for his sterling ongoing work on the Slugger Awards and the various Political Innovation events. Not to mention our great blogging team who have kept things perpendicular (as Old Possum might have put it) in my absence.

Can I also thank those many individuals who sent their kind regards and condolences, and in particular I thank Mark, Eamonn and Alan in Belfast for coming along in person last Thursday. It was much appreciated by the whole family.

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.
