Sgt. Alica Keppley, Marine Aviation Logistics Squadron 13 aviation supply specialist, holds her daughter Arrianna, 2, after returning home to the Marine Corps Air Station in Yuma, Ariz., from a seven-month deployment with the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit aboard the USS Boxer July 31, 2009. Approximately 100 Marine Attack Squadron 214 and MALS-13 Marines and sailors returned to Yuma. While deployed, the Marines aided in counter-piracy operations off the coast of Africa, near the Gulf of Aden, including the recovery of Richard Phillips, a civilian cargo ship captain who was taken hostage by Somali pirates.

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.
