The casket of Staff Sgt. Andrew Harvell is embraced by one of his teammates during Harvell’s funeral at Los Angeles National Cemetery Sept. 10, 2011, in California. The casket is adorned with more than 100 combat controller and pararescue metal beret emblems that were hammered in by Harvell’s teammates in one final tribute. Harvell was a combat controller who died Aug. 6, 2011, when the CH-47 Chinook he was traveling in crashed in the Wardak province of Afghanistan. (US Air Force photo/Joe Juarez)

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.
