We’re getting near the end of my Overexposed LA™ series, and I can feel the sadness in the air. But there are still a couple more to go. This one is the Eli Broad Museum, which is really hard to get a good picture of because there’s so damn much crap in the way. So I turned it into a Photoshop lesson for myself, taking the picture from across the street and then removing the traffic light that covers the front corner. (It sprouts up from the green light in the photo below.) If you look closely you can see where I cloned bits of the facade, but for the most part everything lines up fairly well. And I get better at this every time I do it.

Coming soon: an open pit in downtown LA. Exciting!

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.
