Subscribers should soon receive PLN's annual fund-raiser mailing. If you can afford to make a donation to help sustain and expand PLN's work, please do so. PLN relies almost exclusively on reader support to continue publishing. Subscriptions account for only a portion of the income needed to keep publishing.

The past year has seen significant achievements by PLN, including the completion of our comprehensive index system and the publication of our new book Prison Nation by Routledge Press. With your support we can continue our work. One project we are seeking funding for is to expand PLN 's size to 40 pages to bring readers still more news and information each month. Our fundraiser goal for this year is $35,000. Please donate what you can and don't think that a small donation doesn't help. They do and every little bit helps make a difference.

PLN has been expanding its book selection. We now offer several new dictionaries, self help legal books and cutting edge critiques of the criminal justice system, including several that we recently reviewed in PLN . Check out our book listings on pages 34-35 for more information on these exciting new titles. If you are looking for the perfect holiday gift for friends or loved ones consider giving the gift of knowledge. A gift of books or a subscription to PLN is a great way to both educate people about the reality of the criminal justice system and help support PLN.

PLN is looking for volunteers who live in the Seattle area or who have marketing skills or are set up to do text scanning. Please contact our office if you can help.

We are still accepting submissions to PLN's logo contest. One thing participants should bear in mind is we are looking for a logo which is simple and which will reproduce well in black and white. Think the Nike "swoosh" logo. Many submissions look fantastic but are too intricate, which would make reproduction difficult, especially on a newsprint format. Enjoy this issue of PLN and encourage others to subscribe.
