Big news for all you Facing South fans: we are now bumping up our popular email newsletter -- also called Facing South (it's not confusing, it's a brand!) -- to publishing on a bi-weekly schedule.

That's right -- the South's most-read e-newsletter will be coming to your email in-box every two weeks.

If you don't already get the newsletter, sign up in that box in the right-hand corner. It's free, and a great "one-stop" source for keeping in touch with the changing South. Each issue features updates on key news and trends, fresh analysis and commentary, and the popular Institute Index.

"A must-read for all Southerners and South-watchers," says Texas author and rabble-rouser Jim Hightower. "My favorite newsletter," says Atlanta civil rights activist Rev. Timothy McDonald.

As a Facing South e-newsletter reader, you'll also be the first to learn about Facing South's ground-breaking investigative reports and the Institute's widely-followed research studies.
