Lunchtime Photo

Family week reaches hump day with this pick from my mother. It’s a picture of a Dublin streetlight at dusk. However, the pinkish cast to the light is solely the result of Photoshop.¹ Please don’t visit Dublin and then get mad when night falls and the streetlights are just plain old white, like they are everywhere else.

¹Why did I do this? Because I felt like it. What other excuse do great artists need?

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.
