Today’s photo is my mother’s selection. It’s a closeup of a nesting Canada Goose taken from above. This goose originally had four eggs in her nest, but then lost two of them. She ate one of the ruined eggs, which sounds kind of ghoulish, but I suppose when you have to spend a month on a nest it makes sense to get nourishment anywhere you can. In the end, she lost another egg too for unknown reasons. It was intact, but it just never hatched. I didn’t see the hatching of the final egg, but I presume it did indeed hatch and there’s a goose running around with just one baby. In fact, I suspect it’s this one.

LESS DREADING, MORE DOING

This is the rubber-meets-road moment: the early days in our first fundraising drive since we took a big swing and merged with CIR to bring fearless investigative reporting to the internet, radio, video, and everywhere else that people need an antidote to lies and propaganda.

Donations have started slow, and we hope that explaining, level-headedly, why your support really is everything for our reporting will make a difference. Learn more in “Less Dreading, More Doing,” or in this 2:28 video about our merger (that literally just won an award), and please pitch in if you can right now.
