Abby Zimet


In the wake of funding cuts for organ transplants by Arizona's GOP Gov.
Jan - a.k.a The Grim Reaper - Brewer, a second person has died
after being denied coverage for the life-saving treatment. Officials
say about 100 people waiting for transplants will not get them, with at
least 30 expected to die by what doctors and critics are calling "death by budget cuts."

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
