The really beautiful thing about Crooks and Liars is that all it looks so easy from the outside, you probably take it for granted. You come to the site, you see the videos you want to see (usually before anyone else has them), and the stories go up like clockwork. When it doesn't work, you're surprised -- because it's dependable, like the sun coming up in the morning.
John Amato had the vision. He created this groundbreaking space, and it's still a great one. Each of us who writes for the site has our own voice, but somehow they all sound like Crooks and Liars. Amato is the reason that happens.
The thing is, it's a lot of work -- and it costs a lot of money. The costs go up every year. Not only that, Amato and our tech maven Jamie have plans to make the site even better.
We know times are hard. (We're hurting, too.) But it's absolutely necessary that readers support this piece of progressive infrastructure as much as you can. Even $5 helps. So if you haven't donated yet, it's time to invest in our future. And if you've already given, thanks as always for your support.
