YOU are an essential part of what we do. Simply put, without recurring monthly contributions from readers like you, it's impossible to provide the high quality journalism that protects the marginalized and holds the powerful accountable. We've all seen what happens to communities when reporting disappears and falsehoods take root. So if you believe our mission is important and necessary, please consider a monthly (or one-time) contribution to the Stranger, and we'll keep working hard for you and those who need it most!

And no one gives a shit about the Mariners either. Safeco Field sucks, Ichiro sucks, and we have better things to do than watch a bunch of overpaid millionaires run bases in tight polyester pants. Face facts: Baseball is stupid.
