For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.

As it happens, I myself own a dumb phone.  A very dumb phone.  But it’s sufficient for my needs because, basically, I never use it anyway.

However, if you have a smart phone, you can now do something even smarter with it: read Mother Jones online.  You can read the magazine.  You can read our online web articles.  You can read my blog.  You can read our other blogs.  You can read everything.

Now, since I don’t have a smart phone myself, I can’t honestly tell you how well this works.  But give it a try and let me know.  It’s time for me to replace my old phone anyway, so maybe this will be enough to get me to replace it with something smarter.  More details here.

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America will move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
