I'm taking a short break before ramping back up next week.
Everyone deserves a break, including newsletter publishers.
Again, my condolences on the loss of your dad, Aaron.
Please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your dad. We completely understand the need to step back a bit. Your family are in my prayers. Grief is never easy. and it comes in waves.
One thing as a paid subscriber I would love to see now that Twitter is such a hot mess is for you to cross post your tweets to the notes section here. I don’t have a Twitter account. As you know Elon has blocked the public from accessing tweets.

FSA management companies' hardball tactics to avoid payments
I like to see some stories of navigation. The access to information is changing with the economy and arranging civil and social order. How you all doing it? How do you stay ahead of the social engineering of indifference ? The cultivation of apathy? How do you avoid propaganda? I am hanging onto faith that the social pendulum of justice will swing towards truth to power. Paywalls are killing me and I cannot see society unified if we can’t obtain a diet of honest reporting of events and the dangerous threats that exist to our country, our democracy. How you all doing it? Right now I know exactly what % of my income goes to subscriptions and to whom, but its not a sustainable plan. Someday I may need this money for health care and basic needs. Another arranged barrier is the constant bombardment for funding to get the right people elected into office .... so we can get to the objective, reorder our American way of life back to We the People of a constitutional democracy. Why is it so hard to access news? It’s hard to think that access to the truth will be an expendable option due to its costs. If have pay for it now so I don’t lose it all later. Will there be a food bank of truth set up some where? Do I need to apply for a voucher? A government voucher? Which government?
I like a coaching session or two a set of healthy instructions, if you will, to cost effective access to news.
Thank you for the work you are doing.
Take the time you and your family needs to look after each other.
Aaron-as a subscriber to Public Notice, I've been aware of your dad's passing. I just read his obituary and was struck by what a towering and loving person he was. While I am sorry for your loss, I have to say that reading your dad's obituary made me smile. It was so abundantly clear that your dad was a fabulous human being. Please take solace in the sure knowledge that your dad was one of those rare individuals who touched the lives of everyone who was fortunate enough to know him-even those of us whose only knowledge was an obituary.
Sorry for your loss, there is no easy way to get through that when your dad is such a great person, dear friend, and important part of your family. Mine was too. Lost him six years ago this month, miss him all the time, and I still talk to him quite often.
Hang in there and do what you need to do. Greatly appreciate the important work you and your colleagues do.
Thank you and your colleagues for the informative newsletters. It’s important to know there’s a time to grieve, and to invite it in. I’m very sorry for the loss of your father; it’s hard to lose your dad, who was also your friend. Condolences to your family. 💜
We are in good hands, take all the time you need, Aaron.
Sorry for your loss, Aaron. Take the time you need. We will still be here.
I’m so sorry for your loss.
Hang in there.
The Magical Year
As the one-year anniversary of my mom’s death approaches next week, I feel your grief. It comes in waves now, rather than the constant pounding of facing everything without her. Hugs to you and family. 🥰
Condolences; give yourself plenty of time and space to grieve. You're the only one who really knows what you need.
And don't worry about whether I'm getting my money's worth. It's all about quality and integrity and responsibility, not money, and you're doing fine on those counts. Most important to get yourself whole first. As my Latino and Latina friends would say, ¡Cuídate!
Dear Aaron, I am so sorry for your dad’s sudden passing. He sounds like the kind of person who had what I have come to call “eternal air” around him-one who seems to come through anything and when death finally does happen it leaves loved ones quite shocked. I know the feeling well. Please take all the time you need at this heartbreaking time. We readers always get our money’s worth and more so to let your heart rest awhile is just fine. Deepest sympathy to you, your mother and all loved ones, Mary
I’d really like to hear you/your contributors discuss how the 303 website case was based on lies.
