Person of the Day: Gordon Brown

Gordon Brown Initiation Day. So how are we all going to draw this guy? I started thinking, Well, what kind of dog will he be? Poodle’s been used. Of course, it would be a Scottish terrier. A dog who could play with Barney. Or mate.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
