  • 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!

    from the big banner at the top of our pages asking for the donations that make Mother Jones' nonprofit journalism possible. But we still have upwards of $300,000 to raise by June 30, whether we get there is going to come down to the wire, and we can't afford to come up short.

    If you value the reporting you get from Mother Jones and you can right now, please join your fellow readers who pitch in from time to time to keep our democracy-advancing, justice-seeking journalism charging hard (and to help us avoid a real budget crunch as June 30 approaches and our fiscal year ends).
