Liveblogging— Patrick, South Side born and raised

We wanted to make sure you didn't miss the announcement of our new Sustainer program. Once you've finished reading, take a moment to check out the new program, as well as all the benefits of becoming a Sustainer.

Deval Patrick has been reading him some Jacob Hacker. He also drives home the key point on Katrina -- not only were citizens on the Gulf deserted after the storm, but before as well. But will someone, anyone, really give it to the GOP? Why can't we talk about the housing crisis? Or torture? Or Iraq???

Be a Sustainer

We surveyed thousands of readers and asked what they would like to see in a monthly giving program. Now, for the first time, we're offering three different levels of support, with rewards at each level, including a magazine subscription, books, tote bags, events and more—all starting at less than 17 cents a day. Check out the new Sustainer program.
