  • A 43-year-old man of African-American descent has been charged with defacement of property at the Tupac Amaru Shakur arts center in Atlanta that included hanging a noose around the statue of Tupac. He has not been charged with a hate crime. The vandalism also included flyers bearing rants about other rappers, Hurricane Katrina and 9/11, so it turns out the guy is just, well, a little nuts. And not all nutty protesters can be as fun as our 12 Galaxies guy.

  • Roseanne Cash, the 52-year-old daughter of Johnny Cash, is set to undergo brain surgery for a “rare but benign condition” and is canceling the rest of her tour. Her label released a statement saying that the singer is expected to make a full recovery.

  • The White Stripes have apparently been busy, posting on their website that they’ve been working on a new video, three new songs that include a “special collaboration,” and a new version of a track from Icky Thump. Well, yes, that’s what bands do I guess, but they’re the White Stripes.

  • Jimmy Page broke his pinky in a fall in his garden, it turns out. Rock ‘n’ roll!
  • THE TRUTH...

    is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

    Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

    And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
