The Evil Dex Makes a Comeback

Blah. I visited my oncologist yesterday and I’ll be starting up the Evil Dex again (along with yet another maintenance med). The good news—such as it is—is that he gave me the option of taking the dex weekly or splitting it in half and taking it twice a week. I think I’ll try that. It’s possible that a half dose will have a small enough effect that I can sleep through it with a normal dose of Ambien. And if I can sleep normally, maybe it won’t affect my daytime performance either. Worth a try!


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.
