What’s new and Blue Marble-ish so far this week:

Latest bizarre GOP health care claim: That a reformed health care system might discriminate against Republicans. Huh?

No love from NOLA: Was Obama all talk about the Katrina recovery?

Helluva show: The only thing missing from the health care townhall meetings was sharks with laser beams attached to their heads. 

Bottled water bullies: What the bottled water indsutry in Scotland plans to do in case “the media turns hostile to our cause.”

Move over, pavement: And make way for…solar panels?

THE END...

of our fiscal year is Thursday, June 30, and we have a much larger fundraising gap than we can easily manage with only days left to go.

Right now is no time to come up short: If you value the hard-hitting, democracy-protecting, justice-advancing journalism you get from Mother Jones, please help us keep charging as hard as we possibly can with a much-needed and much-appreciated donation today.
