Lunchtime Photo

This is Rosario Beach. It’s on the southern end of Fidalgo Island between Everett and Bellingham in Washington State. It looks even prettier in the photograph than it does in real life, and far more peaceful. It was actually a fairly busy place when we were there, with lots of kids running around and a bunch of annoying photographers and bird watchers tramping all over. But you can forget all that because they’ve been cropped out of this picture.

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.
