SubscribeStar Saturday: Culture Matters

Today’s post is a SubscribeStar Saturday exclusive.  To read the full post, subscribe to my SubscribeStar page for $1 a month or more.

An additional appeal, and an update:  starting tomorrow (Sunday, 10 November 2019), I’ll begin posting a Sunday Doodle for $5 and up subscribers.  I am a prolific doodler (yikes!), and, on the recommendation of my younger brother, I’m going to upload one or two every Sunday, but only to my SubscribeStar page.

The additional appeal:  I need one more subscriber to ensure that subscribers enjoy auto-renewal each month.  SubscribeStar requires five subscribers to enable auto-renewal as an anti-fraud measure.  If you or someone you know would be interested in a subscription, please forward them this link:  https://www.subscribestar.com/the-portly-politico.

Thank you for your support!
