Back to Bottom-feeders or Ahead to Pre-natal care

In Virginia, the country’s wildest senate race lets you pick whichever candidate represents your favorite deadly sin:

PRIDE
Ollie North boasts of being the lone non-lawyer, though without slick attorneys, he’d still be a convicted felon (see “Oliver Twisted”, May/June 1994).
LUST
Chuck Robb pleads that he never really “loved” the young women who’ve given him discreet lip service during his marriage.
ENVY
Hellbent to unseat Robb, former governor Doug Wilder may split the Demo vote by running as an independent.
GLUTTONY
Perennial GOP candidate Marshall Coleman, now also running as an indie, flip-flops his abortion position every time he loses.

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
