Putting the pedal to the metal of his old man’s Olds, Albert Arnold Gore, the 17-year-old son of Vice President Al Gore, was caught going 97 miles per hour in a 55 zone in North Carolina. Cited for endangering “persons and property” the young squid will face a judge on Sept. 13, according to the ticket, which the ever-vigilant THE SMOKING GUN has posted on its Web site.

The ticket is part of the site’s “Campaign 2000 police blotter,” which includes a spooky police report on “hunkalicious” Dubya nephew George P. Bush, as well.

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.
