I spent 47 years in paper newspapers. I still crave the depth and intelligence that newspaper journalism contributes to my grasp of my town and the world around it.
Though Crosscut is delivered to my laptop, not my porch, it brings the caliber of coverage and commentary I expect from print. The personal advantage I get from that is one reason I am a member of Crosscut.
The other is what Crosscut does for this community. The smart voices we read on Crosscut — and nowhere else — enhance and broaden the local conversation. Seattle is complicated. To participate in this community and make our own decisions, we need all the thoughtful angles we can get on what matters here.
Crosscut makes me a better citizen and Seattle a better place to live. If you are one of those who has experienced the benefits, please consider joining in support of this nonpartisan, nonprofit news source.
