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?

This Chicago Journal piece on screwed-up Near West Side parking meters is worth a read anyway, but at least click through to see the second picture, which is so full of win I can’t rightly fair-use it. 

The new Web site’s nice, too.
