Please enjoy this reading of my ‘Spy Traitor Con’ post, which features such lines as:
As I think of a possible future for the spy-traitor-cons who sold out our democracy with terrible human costs, I like to think the haunting has already begun.
Look forward to seeing many of you on Sunday, when David Pepper gives us our ‘Saving Democracy’ marching orders. Also looking forward to seeing some of you tonight, as Zarina Zabrisky and I host the US/Hollywood premiere of The Eastern Front.
Stay kind, stay focused, stay loud.
Bette Dangerous is a reader-funded magazine. Thank you to all monthly, annual, and founding members. Thank you as well to all those who support my work with your generous coffee tips and who buy my ebooks. Some of you prefer making subsidizing donations via venmo, and it’s always greatly appreciated. Thank you to everyone who pitches in with a monthly membership - each time they come in, it always feels like pennies from heaven.
A private link to an annual membership discount for older adults, those on fixed incomes or drawing disability, as well as activists and members of the media is available upon request at firstname.lastname@example.org.
