About 250,000 people will think twice before ordering free sex products at the next giveaway. Ryan Singel at Wired has been unraveling the latest case of a leaked customer database. “There’s no such thing as a free lubricant,” he writes. All too true. Way to stay on top of the story, Ryan. Customers are worried about what will come out of their next prospective employer’s Google search, but I think the Astroglide corporation is going to have to do the biggest reputation clean-up of all.

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.
