As we reported yesterday, resident MoJo badass (and human rights reporter) Mac McClelland is down in Louisiana covering the BP oil fiasco as it washes up on shore. Today she’s back at Grand Isle beach, where there are dolphins, yelling cops, and huge pools of oil. Right now she’s headed to the new ‘BP Information Center’ to ask why cops are trying to block reporters. Barring arrest, she’ll be live-Tweeting from the scene. Follow her coverage below (takes a sec to load), or follow her on Twitter here.

WE'RE TAKING A SHORT BREAK…

from the big banner at the top of our pages asking for the donations that make Mother Jones' nonprofit journalism possible. But we still have upwards of $300,000 to raise by June 30, whether we get there is going to come down to the wire, and we can't afford to come up short.

If you value the reporting you get from Mother Jones and you can right now, please join your fellow readers who pitch in from time to time to keep our democracy-advancing, justice-seeking journalism charging hard (and to help us avoid a real budget crunch as June 30 approaches and our fiscal year ends).
