Brodner’s Person of the Day: U.S. Bridge Team

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


Members of the U.S. bridge team, which last month won the world championship in Shanghai. They are now facing sanctions for holding up a sign disclaiming all responsibility for the monstrosity the U.S. has become under the corrupt and perverted hand of Bush & Co. The U.S. Bridge Federation actually says it can cancel free speech within its confines. Very interesting. What does it think this country is about, I wonder. These ladies all deserve our total support. The truth has its own purposes. Besides, who among us doesn’t travel abroad without the icky feeling of suspecting the Bush BO your hosts think you have. You’re not just whistlin’ Dixie, Chicks.

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.
