I wish my enemies to take note that my quadruple by-pass heart surgery three weeks ago was quite successful. My doctors say I can suit up for dragon-slaying in about six weeks. Bless you all for your thousands of healing notes and thoughts.
The day before going under the knife, I was reminded that, “You can’t take it with you” — because the insurance company will take it first. (Bada-bing!) So, I invited my attorney to the cardiac unit (no kidding) to tweak my last will and testament — insuring that royalties to my books and films will continue to go the Palast Investigative Fund.
I truly wish you a long, happy and healthy life. But, alas, one day we all must shunt our mortal coils.
I am pleased to announce my new association with Al Jazeera for a series of in-depth globe-spanning investigative reports. It is a great honor to join with journalists whose inestimable courage I cannot hope to replicate, but whose high standards we will dignify with our best work.
Al Jazeera: “Journalism is not a crime.”
So, please, don’t leave without saying goodbye. It’s easy. Simply include the Palast Investigative Fund in your will. And contact us to let us know.
For those of you who seek more elaborate tax-savvy estate planning, our not-for-profit foundation has retained the services of an expert who can help guide you, please contact us.
But, if you’re the impatient type, you can donate RIGHT NOW, and enjoy one of our special thank you gifts. Donate at least $50 dollars and get a signed copy of Billionaires & Ballot Bandits. Donate $1,000 and get a listing as a producer of the film, Billionaires & Ballot Bandits: The Movie.
And, boy, can we use the help. Right now, our team is heading down to a state we can’t name to dig into the latest in vote-theft shenanigans. A gaggle of secretaries of states, a bunch of Katherine Harris wannabes, have cooked up a devious scheme to knock out the votes of some 700,000 Asian-Americans. And it gets worse from there.
I am temporarily barred from pre-dawn stake-outs and hunts up the Congo River. But bad guys won’t get a vacation: Zach, Nicole, Anthony, Lilly, Ms. Badpenny and the whole crew are taking up the sword while I recover and thank them.
And bless you all for keeping us clothed, fed and armed over the decade since our founding.
Live long and give’m hell,
– Greg Palast
