White Stripes
I actually just can’t believe they beat me to it. We’ve been covering the White Stripes’ cancellation of their fall tour due to reported “anxiety” and a “breakdown” on the part of drummer Meg White; in the absence of further details, one can’t help but wonder what’s really going on. Well, New York magazine’s got some ideas, ten in fact: their article, “Ten Things That Probably Stressed Out Meg White” is actually in the best of spirits (“get well soon Meg!”) although it does point out her widely-noted “primitivist” drumming style: “couldn’t remember drum part to ‘Seven Nation Army'” is #2. Well, it’s pretty cute, anyway. The Riff loves you too, Meg.

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.
