Friday was dex day, which means that Friday night was dex night. I eventually got bored and decided to get in my car and roam around looking for pictures to take. Neither of the things I had in mind panned out, but eventually I ended up near the Segerstrom Center for the Arts. That turned out to be a nice place to stop.

This is a picture of Segerstrom Hall, the first concert hall built at the center. It takes a nice picture at night, doesn’t it? It is sadly empty in these virus-infested times, but I can assure you that all its employees are hard at work at home. Right, inkblotsaunt?

MOTHER JONES NEEDS YOUR HELP

Straight to the point: Donations have been concerningly slow for our hugely important First $500,000 fundraising campaign. We urgently need your help, and a lot of help, over the next few weeks so we can pay for the one-of-a-kind journalism you get from us.

Learn more in “Less Dreading, More Doing,” where we lay out this wild moment and how we can keep charging hard for you. And please help if you can: $5, $50, or $500—every gift from every person truly matters right now.
