From AP by way of New York magazine comes word of the most adorable crime ever. A New Hampshire black bear broke into someone’s house, ate some pears, drank some water, and then rescued a teddy bear from human servitude on his way out:

According to homeowner Mary Beth Parkinson, the real bear fled when he heard the sound of her garage door going up but “grabbed a stuffed bear” just before lumbering out the door.

See? Don’t you feel slightly better already about Mac’s latest BP news?

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.
