Grist winds down for a holiday break

Before we say toodle-oo for the holidays, we must extend a ginormous and heartfelt thank you to all of the readers who donated during our recent fundraising appeal. We raised more than $62,000, considered spending it all on organic eggnog, then wisely decided to invest in more — much more! — spunky green journalism. (Haven’t donated yet? It’s not too late — you could still get that 2006 tax deduction.) And now, toodle-oo. Daily Grist will be settling down for a short winter’s nap; catch us again on Jan. 2. But our blog Gristmill never nestles all snug in its bed — stay tuned over the holidays for all the latest environmental news.
