At one point during my wanderings around New York City a few weeks ago, I ended up on the east side of Central Park near a plot of grass that’s apparently a dog run. As you can see, lighted collars are now stylish accessories for nighttime canine frolics, and when I saw these dogs the first thing I thought of was Star Wars. I was really hoping they’d both run around and play with each other, allowing me to get some kind of picture that looked like a light saber duel, but no such luck. They just meandered around a bit while their owners argued politics.

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.
