“Grist is the best. I simply could not get by without it — that’s why I give. I am most interested in your coverage of ag and nutrition policy, as that is my field. Tom Philpott is one of my favorite journalists ever, and I also like Tom Laskawy and more recently Ed Bruske. Also loved the article on the old PBR ad — it’s so cool that Grist knows that PBR is in among hipster urban farmers.”

Thanks, Sally. Given your love of award winning brews, I’m sure you’ll put your Klean Kanteen to good use.
