I write about politics, law, pop culture, and higher ed because these topics are important to me—

but also because I know how important they are to others. Being an independent journalist is time-consuming work, however. I don't use Patreon or any other formal donation platform, so I appreciate it more than I can say when readers enjoy what I write enough to want to contribute to my research and writing. Any amount is welcome; knowing my work has value to its audience helps keep me going. So if you enjoy my contributions on Twitter and other sites and would like to see more of them, please click the PayPal link below. PayPal is quick, easy, and 100% secure.

My sincere thanks for your generosity!
