The New Criterion is probably more consistently worth reading than any other magazine in English.

The looming fiscal TNC

by James Panero

Posted: Dec 26, 2012 12:39 PM

The New Criterion relies on its readers for support. More than ever, that means its online readers. The magazine have a ways to go before it can close up its calendar-year shortfall. Even as our masters in Washington steer us towards their fiscal cliff, you can help avoid another by supporting The New Criterion's end-of-year appeal. If you value The New Criterion's cultural criticism, it's now easier than ever to give back through the magazine's one-click online donation system. Read a special appeal from Roger Kimball here, and be sure to let us know how you'd like to see your donation applied here
