Take a 9/11 Break . . . With Puppies!


It’s been a rough slog of a decade since 9/11. Hard to look back at that day and all the icky, gloomy things that followed without feeling really, really tired. May we recommend a puppy break? The somber eulogies and ponderous reflections will still be going when you get back, we promise.

Ready to read on? We recommend David Corn on what 9/11 didn’t change, a proposal to cancel today’s ceremonies, and a deep data dive into how the FBI is fighting—or creating—terror cases since the attacks.

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.
