Happy End of the Year!


For many reasons—some that you know about, others that you don’t—2014 has been, let’s say, a less than ideal year in the Drum household. So nobody here is bidding 2014 a fond farewell. More like a kick to the curb, with the hope that 2015 can hardly help but be better.

So that’s that. Goodbye 2014. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out. And in fairness, it wasn’t all bad, as the photo below shows. This is what our new furballs do to cardboard scratching pads. For 2015, perhaps we’ll buy them a nice fresh one to shred to pieces.

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 today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
