Here are a few links from our net-surfer at large, Ian Kallen:


Bob Dole’s reply to the State of the Union speech is on-line.

Banter regarding everyone’s favorite potatoe friar, the intellectual shining light of the Republican Party Dan Quayle can be read in the newsgroup alt.fan.dan-quayle.

And if you are one of those very few people who don’t have access to his radio show, that airwave curmudgeon Rush Limbaugh‘s followers are in the bandwidth! (alt.fan.rush-limbaugh)

Not everyone will have access to the above newsgroups, so some of you poor souls will miss out. Harangue your system administrator if you’re really desperate to read these rantings.

DOES IT FEEL LIKE POLITICS IS AT A BREAKING POINT?

Headshot of Editor in Chief of Mother Jones, Clara Jeffery

It sure feels that way to me, and here at Mother Jones, we’ve been thinking a lot about what journalism needs to do differently, and how we can have the biggest impact.

We kept coming back to one word: corruption. Democracy and the rule of law being undermined by those with wealth and power for their own gain. So we're launching an ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project to do deep, time-intensive reporting on systemic corruption, and asking the MoJo community to help crowdfund it.

We aim to hire, build a team, and give them the time and space needed to understand how we got here and how we might get out. We want to dig into the forces and decisions that have allowed massive conflicts of interest, influence peddling, and win-at-all-costs politics to flourish.

It's unlike anything we've done, and we have seed funding to get started, but we're looking to raise $500,000 from readers by July when we'll be making key budgeting decisions—and the more resources we have by then, the deeper we can dig. If our plan sounds good to you, please help kickstart it with a tax-deductible donation today.

Thanks for reading—whether or not you can pitch in today, or ever, I'm glad you're with us.
