Grammar Police

Ezra Klein:

Like most bloggers, I’m not too fond of e-mails correcting my grammar.

Really? I like getting emails about grammar and spelling. I mean, don’t be a dick or anything, but if there’s a mistake to be corrected or a usage issue to be debated, bring it on. We strive for linguistic greatness around here.


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.
