When Universal decided to make Jaws 2, they asked my dad to reprise his role from the first movie. Steven Spielberg wasn’t going to direct it though. My dad asked for some insane amount of money. They said, “Richard, that’s an insane number. We can’t pay you that.” And my dad said, “It’s not insane. This is how much I’ll need to live on for the rest of my life, because if I’m in this movie, I’ll never work again.” He passed.

Sequels rarely live up to the original: A lesson Donald Trump apparently never learned.

Apparently REM made him pull the original so this is a follow up with some music he could get the rights to. Hard to make good meme videos when you’re as widely hated by the artistic community as Donald Trump. 

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.
