Why yes, I am blogging a little later than usual. Thanks for noticing. Because I had two days of chemo in a row, that meant two days of dex in a row, which in turn meant that I was awake for 40 straight hours without even a little bit of catnapping. So what would happen when bedtime rolled around? Would I stay up all night again? Or would 40 hours plus a sleeping pill be enough to vanquish the dex?

The sleep debt plus the pill won. Hooray! This is useless knowledge since I’ll never do this two days in a row again, but really, is any knowledge ever truly useless?

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.
