My chemotherapy, which until now has had fairly predictable side effects, seems to have entered a less predictable phase. This means that my fatigue level changes from day to day, and with it my blogging output. So some days you’ll see a bunch of posts, and other days you’ll see one or two. It doesn’t really mean anything is wrong. It just means I’m having a predictably unpredictable bad day.

In addition, today I have several appointments, and Marian is undergoing major surgery. Nothing life-threatening, so no worries on that score. But a very big deal nonetheless.

In other words, there’s not likely to be any blogging today. Tomorrow, who knows? As they say, tomorrow is another day.

4 PM UPDATE: According to the surgeons, Marian’s surgery was entirely successful. She’s still waking up from the anesthesia and has several weeks of recovery ahead of her, but everything went fine.

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
