  • A 43-year-old man of African-American descent has been charged with defacement of property at the Tupac Amaru Shakur arts center in Atlanta that included hanging a noose around the statue of Tupac. He has not been charged with a hate crime. The vandalism also included flyers bearing rants about other rappers, Hurricane Katrina and 9/11, so it turns out the guy is just, well, a little nuts. And not all nutty protesters can be as fun as our 12 Galaxies guy.

  • Roseanne Cash, the 52-year-old daughter of Johnny Cash, is set to undergo brain surgery for a “rare but benign condition” and is canceling the rest of her tour. Her label released a statement saying that the singer is expected to make a full recovery.

  • The White Stripes have apparently been busy, posting on their website that they’ve been working on a new video, three new songs that include a “special collaboration,” and a new version of a track from Icky Thump. Well, yes, that’s what bands do I guess, but they’re the White Stripes.

  • Jimmy Page broke his pinky in a fall in his garden, it turns out. Rock ‘n’ roll!

    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.
