Back to Bottom-feeders or Ahead to Pre-natal care

In Virginia, the country’s wildest senate race lets you pick whichever candidate represents your favorite deadly sin:

PRIDE
Ollie North boasts of being the lone non-lawyer, though without slick attorneys, he’d still be a convicted felon (see “Oliver Twisted”, May/June 1994).
LUST
Chuck Robb pleads that he never really “loved” the young women who’ve given him discreet lip service during his marriage.
ENVY
Hellbent to unseat Robb, former governor Doug Wilder may split the Demo vote by running as an independent.
GLUTTONY
Perennial GOP candidate Marshall Coleman, now also running as an indie, flip-flops his abortion position every time he loses.

Fact:

In-depth journalism that investigates the powerful takes real money and is so damn important right now.But it doesn’t take a Mother Jones investigation to know that billionaires and corporations will never fund the type of reporting (like they do politicians) we do that exists to help bring about change. Instead, our mission-driven journalism is made possible by people power, and has been for 46 years now since our founding as a non-profit.

In “TITLE TK” Monica Bauerlein writes about the perilous moment we’re in, and why it’s so important that we raise $325,000 by the time November’s midterms are decided so we can be ready to throw everything we have at the big issues facing the nation no matter what happens.
