Quote of the Day


From Jaci Woods, a real estate broker in Irvine, California, explaining the charm of our little planned community:

“The people that don’t like following rules say they can’t stand it. I saw a man on a ladder starting to paint the side of his house lavender,” she said, noting the color was banned by the homeowners association. “It’s the ones like that that we guard against.”

True that.  You can’t be too careful in these parts.  In fact, my neighbor’s air conditioner has been on the fritz for the past few weeks and its racket has become really annoying.  I’m thinking about having him deported with extreme prejudice.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
