Quick housekeeping note.  I’ll be at Netroots Nation in Pittsburgh on Friday and Saturday of next week.  It’s always nice to meet people who read the blog, so if you’ll be there too and happen to see me wandering the hallways, be sure to stop me and say hi.

I’ll also be moderating the noon keynote panel on Saturday, “Building a 21st Century Economy.”  The panelists, who will be doing most of the actual talking, are Jon Corzine, governor of New Jersey; Anna Burger, chair of the Change to Win labor coalition; and Dean Baker, the economist who’s been warning us about the housing bubble longer than just about anyone.  Should be a good session.  If you have any questions you’d like tossed at these guys, leave ’em in comments.

THIS IS BIG FOR US.

And we won't beat around the bush: Our fundraising drive to finish our current budget on June 30 and start our new fiscal year on July 1 is lagging behind where we need it to be.

If you value the reporting you get from Mother Jones and you can right now, please consider joining your fellow readers with a donation to help make it all possible. Whether you can pitch in $5 or $500, it all matters.

If you're new to Mother Jones or aren't yet sold on supporting our nonprofit reporting, please take a moment to read Monika Bauerlein's post about our priorities after these chaotic several years, and why this relatively quiet moment is also an urgent one for our democracy and Mother Jones’ bottom line—and if you find it compelling, please join us.
