Cancer Coverage: Women diagnosed with breast cancer got their insurance yanked.

Checkup: A month later, more people are in favor of healthcare reform.

Oil Flip Flop: Oil companies say they will back Kerry’s climate bill.

Bringing Up Baby: How could parents forget a baby in a car? Easily, unfortunately.

Publicly Pregnant: MTV’s “16 and Pregnant” takes an unrealistic view of the subject.

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.
