Lunchtime Photo

I had a window seat on my flight back to Orange County on Saturday, and during our final approach I snapped this lovely picture of our old blimp hangars. I got lucky with the dramatic sky and the sun peeping through at just the right place, and then, for some reason, I decided I wanted to make the picture look like a 40s-era Kodachrome slide from when the hangars were built. I didn’t quite get there, but I think I got close.

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.
