Dear Reader,

Just when each of us should be feeling ecstatic that a dark, 8-year period of corruption, greed and arrogance is about to end, we're also feeling uncertain and financially distressed because of the unprecedented global economic crash.

We're definitely feeling the split here at AlterNet. In many ways, 2008 was a banner year for us. We were a major player in crushing the right wing. We smashed every one of our visitor records, attracting a whopping 35 million readers. The economic crunch is going to hurt us too, unless you can help us out.

Can we count on you to step up and support AlterNet at this very crucial moment?
