We’re kicking off Giving Tuesday early this year! Your donation today will be matched up to $10K, doubling your impact! If you donate $50 today, the Reader will receive $100.

The Reader is now a community-funded nonprofit newsroom. Can we count on your support to help keep us publishing?

Guess that Change.gov job application was a waste of time (emphasis mine):

“They must include any e-mail that might embarrass the president-elect, along with any blog posts and links to their Facebook pages.”

Uh-oh. I’m going to have to just mail them a hard drive, since that description includes about 50% of what I’ve done with my waking hours over the past couple years. My Facebook page is pretty safe, except for that time I joined the group “I support Saxby Chambliss in everyway” (sic) because I thought it was funny.

Handy hint for anyone who wants to work in the government in the future: STOP BLOGGING. NOW.
