Lunchtime Photo

New York City was muggy and cloudy when I was there last month, which meant that it was impossible to shoot a really good skyline picture. Still, I’d never been to the top of the Empire State Building as an adult, so I went up and took a few shots anyway. This one is a panorama of three photos stitched together, looking uptown toward Central Park a little after 11 pm. Because the picture wasn’t great to begin with, I did sort of a half-ass job of the stitching, which means that you can amuse yourself by trying to suss out where the stitches are. Have fun!

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.
