Hello Flyover Reader!

This is Cole speaking, CEO here at our little newsletter. 

Actually, it isn’t so little anymore. We’re about to cross a major milestone: half a million readers!

When we started The Flyover, we wanted to create a news source with three major benefits:

1) Curation. There are, at last count, 17 bazillion news websites. Sorting through them takes time—something we’re all short on. 

2) Freedom from media bias. It’s tough to find a news outlet that doesn’t twist things to fit their agenda. 

3) Brevity. News writers have a bad habit of using 23 words when they could use 11. Speaking of that, I’d better wrap this up. 

We weren’t sure how many folks would want to take off with us in the mornings. It turns out that a whole lot of you do

That’s great news, and it means we’re staffing up around here. An extra employee or two will raise our quality level (for example, editing our editions during business hours and avoiding sleepy-eyed mistakes about major sporting events 😬)

Would you help support us today?

$15 for Writing Fuel (Coffee)

$50 for Increased Email Costs

$150 to Help Hire a New Employee

Even if you can’t tip today, we’re grateful that you’re here! Thanks for reading and telling so many of your friends about us.
