Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Holy crap -- Gothamist meets Tim Gunn! They also report on Hugo Chavez's visit to New York, and interview Consumption Junction founder Paul Dinn.

LAist goes to the mat for USC, HATES on Helio (and gets results! Man, LAist rules!), and welcomes H&M to Pasadena.

Bostonist lets us know that we might be able to give up Magic Tanning sooner than we'd expect, reports on a truck that helps public transit users understand the fare collection system, and gives the latest from MIT.

Parisist: it's not just in French anymore. Check it out! Now we monolinguists can easily read stories about stuff like the impressionist train driver (and Parisist commenter!), and the surprising gender divide among drivers in the TGV. Hooray!
