One of the reasons for last weekend’s trip to Big Bear was to check out the turning of the leaves. It turned out that we were too early and didn’t see much color, but there was some color, including this very nice bigleaf maple on Highway 18. This is enough to remind us that we’re already a month into autumn, and you know what that means, don’t you? It means there are only a few days left of daylight saving time and you have to change your clocks next weekend. Tick, tick, tick.

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.
