Today I start my second round of chemotherapy. The big difference this time around is a new drug—Darzalex—which takes way longer to infuse than the drug from the 2014 round of chemo. As a result, my weekly sessions are scheduled to last seven hours starting at 8:30 am.

But! The medical center has plenty of electricity and plenty of WiFi, and I have plenty of portable technology. So I intend to blog my way through the whole thing. It may be a little slower than normal, since I’ll have to use the cursed virtual keyboard instead of my beloved clicky Das Keyboard, but them’s the breaks. With any luck, I’ll be back online in an hour or so, right after they’ve finished poking and prodding me and connecting me to a machine that goes beep.

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.
