Lunchtime Photo

Friday was a dex night and I was bored, so I got in my car and drove around looking for pictures to take. Sometime in the wee hours of Saturday morning, while I was drifting east on Whittier Blvd., I saw this shop. Or, not a shop, really, just a gate. A beat up, worn out gate.

I don’t know what it is. I don’t want to know. What I do know is that it perfectly captures my internal monologue most of the time these days: a beat up, worn out gallery of Tourette’s. Maybe yours too?

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.
