I almost forgot, but an Edison worker just knocked on my door to remind me that power is scheduled to go out here for a few hours. The last time this happened, I figured I was all set: my tablet was charged and my cell phone hotspot was ready to go. Who needs electricity? Unfortunately, it turned out that the local T-Mobile tower was inside the maintenance area, so it went down along with everything else. No hotspot, no internet connection, no blogging.

This time perhaps I’ll be luckier. But if there’s nothing new on the blog for the next few hours, now you know why.

Right now is no time to come up short: If you value the hard-hitting, democracy-protecting, justice-advancing journalism you get from Mother Jones, please help us keep charging as hard as we possibly can with a much-needed and much-appreciated donation today.
