Good news, conservatives! If the Republican National Convention gets a little too stressful, you can always unwind—gratis—in “Tampa Bay’s only gay owned and gay operated, private club, resort & bathhouse.” From now until August 31, the Ybor Resort and Spa, located in the heart of Tampa’s sultry Ybor City party district, is offering a super promotion: “ALL RNC DELEGATES GET IN FREE!” Tea party, anyone?

“All guys 18 & up” are welcome to sample Ybor’s recently opened steam room, not to mention the spa’s brand-spanking new dark room, dubbed “A Shot In The Dark.” Just bear in mind the house rules: It’s a private men’s health club; no drugs, pets, or prostitution; and always wear your towel!

Thank you!

We didn't know what to expect when we told you we needed to raise $400,000 before our fiscal year closed on June 30, and we're thrilled to report that our incredible community of readers contributed some $415,000 to help us keep charging as hard as we can during this crazy year.

You just sent an incredible message: that quality journalism doesn't have to answer to advertisers, billionaires, or hedge funds; that newsrooms can eke out an existence thanks primarily to the generosity of its readers. That's so powerful. Especially during what's been called a "media extinction event" when those looking to make a profit from the news pull back, the Mother Jones community steps in.

The months and years ahead won't be easy. Far from it. But there's no one we'd rather face the big challenges with than you, our committed and passionate readers, and our team of fearless reporters who show up every day.
