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.

Today's "Now What?!?" moments:ITT writer Silja Talvi calls in with a tip: A bogus letter, supposedly issued by the NAACP, is circulating in South Carolina. It claims that voters with outstanding parking tickets or unpaid child support will be arrested at the polls, and claims that all voters will need to bring two forms of ID, a Social Security card, a voter registration card, and a handwriting sample. AP report Orrin Hatch just told FOX News that if John Kerry wins, we'll have terrorists "coming out of our ears" hold on, what was that…Tallahassee bomb threat, office of elections? Jesus, America take a break! I haven't even finished my coffee yet.More to come as the caffeine takes effect.

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.
