Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

The Arizona Guardian news site hung out a cyber-shingle for a new, online store chock full of paraphernalia sporting the start-up's name.

Perhaps a bit cheesy, but we wouldn't overly fault the Guardian, a site started by laid-off journalists from the East Valley Tribune, for trying to scrape up a few extra dollars. The site is being bankrolled, for the time being, by a Democratic political consultant, but it's also trying to sell subscriptions. It could be that its new subscribers have been clamoring for Arizona Guardian spaghetti tank-tops, messenger bags, and bibs.

For all anyone knows, Web sites like the Guardian will become the primary source of news in the future and their schwag will be worn proudly by savvy readers.

On the other hand, items like today's "AzG Modern Wall Clock" (for the not-so-low price of $41.99), could be tomorrow's rare collectible.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
