Evil Dex Getting Eviller

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.

Damn. Usually I take my weekly dose of dex on Thursday, but this week I took it on Friday. I was up all night, as usual, and tired all day Saturday, as usual. But then: on Sunday afternoon I crashed for three hours. On Monday I crashed for eight hours, with a one-hour break. Today I crashed for two hours in the morning and then for about two hours in the afternoon.

This is getting nuts. I’m using the word “crash” to distinguish these sleeping jags from a mere conscious decision to take a little nap. It’s basically an involuntary coma. Is this what it’s like to be a cat?

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
