Sit Tight, Pooch, I’ll Just Be a Minute

Images of dogs left in cars.


It’s a common sight: man’s best friend left alone and whining in a car, awaiting his owner’s return from a quick errand. But what is that silent emotion expressed on the face of a dog staring through a fogged window? That face you’ve only seen in passing? The camera lingers on forlorn puppy mugs in this slideshow; each image exposes a nuanced feeling of rejection.

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.
