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.

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.
