“God Help Us All!”: Photos From the Gulf Coast

MoJo reporter MacMcClelland is back on the Gulf Coast reporting on the oil disaster. She’s tweeting and sending back photos from the road. Here are some visual highlights, read her full post here.

Another seafood shack shut down from the spill.

On the way back to Grand Isle, Louisiana. Residents painted this mural for Obama’s visit.

This roadside sculpture pretty well encapsulates local feelings.

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
