MoJo Mix: 23 July 2009


Kevin’s usually optimistic about health care reform on odd-numbered days, but the news out of Congress is a little sour today. Voila, 4 sweet story recommendations for your Thursday news chaser:

1) Apocalypse Ciao: When the economic Rapture comes, will collapsitarians be the chosen ones?

2) Hippie, put your clothes on. California doesn’t want to see your naughty bits at the beach anymore.

3) A zombie meme returns: Vaccines still don’t cause autism. But you wouldn’t know it from the comments on this article.

4) The Going Galt movement protests Obama with a collective shrug.

And what the heck, 5) A video of Amy Poehler hearting on Mother Jones with Sarah Silverman and a few other very funny ladies.

Laura McClure hosts podcasts, writes the MoJo Mix, and is the new media editor at Mother Jones. Read her investigative feature on lifehacking gurus in the latest issue of Mother Jones.
