Isn’t it about time for all of our cranky old white folks to retire from public life and spend the rest of their golden years on the golf course or the shooting range or whatever floats their boat? I suppose we have to continue inviting them to Thanksgiving dinner, what with them being family and all, but that’s about it. Beyond that, they should stick to ranting to their friends about how hard it is to get good help these days and otherwise leave the rest of us alone.

As for all their slick young white enablers, surely you guys have less nauseating ways of rising in the world? Roger Ailes doesn’t pay that well, does he?

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
