So here's the deal: If you occasionally purchase an espresso-based beverage for yourself, consider that you can also afford to send the same amount you spend at a coffeehouse to Crooks and Liars for our fall fundraiser. We won't spend it on coffee, but it will keep this blog going. Every five dollar contribution adds up quickly, and we really appreciate it.
