On the left, Big Brother is watching Inkblot. As you can tell, he’s enthralled by this gigantic televised version of himself. On the right, Domino is pretending to be a zebra. Not very well, mind you, but she’s trying. And with that, I’m off to lunch and then to the Apple Genius Bar to see if they can make my mother’s iPod work again.

But one other thing first: you may have noticed that it’s fundraising week here at MoJo. We rely on a lot of different funding sources to keep things going around here, and our readers are one of them. So if you appreciate what the magazine does, as well as what I and the other bloggers do, we’d sure appreciate your help in return. You can donate here. Thanks!

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
