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.

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.
