Housekeeping Note


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.

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
