The Evil Dex Makes a Comeback

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.

Blah. I visited my oncologist yesterday and I’ll be starting up the Evil Dex again (along with yet another maintenance med). The good news—such as it is—is that he gave me the option of taking the dex weekly or splitting it in half and taking it twice a week. I think I’ll try that. It’s possible that a half dose will have a small enough effect that I can sleep through it with a normal dose of Ambien. And if I can sleep normally, maybe it won’t affect my daytime performance either. Worth a try!

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.
