You Don't Have to Be in Denver to Join This Party
By Al Giordano
I'm still formulating what I hope will be a meaningful wrap-up of a wonderful and productive long weekend at the Netroots Nation convention in Austin (which, in part, was a test-drive for our upcoming attendance at and reporting from the Democratic National Convention in Denver, a month from now). One of the successes in Austin was in our hosting the best convention-eve party there: we met a gigantic posse of friends, Field Hands, readers and colleagues to help us navigate the rest of the week.
Our party in Austin was free (well, for everyone else: we sprung for the food) and the trip overall cost us more dough. The expenses for the Denver coverage have already been met through so many of your donations last month, but we've also got to keep the labor, the hardware and the software of this project going: The Fund for Authentic Journalism, which supports our work, relies on your contributions.
And so with the help of some Colorado Field Hands - including Keith Howard, who has lent us his beautiful home on Sunday, August 24 - our garden party in Denver will also be a fundraising event.
And so, The Field and Narco News cordially invite you to:
A Sunday Afternoon Reception in Denver
