My second stage treatment for multiple myeloma starts in earnest on Monday. I’ll be at City of Hope the entire week while they collect stem cells and then process and freeze them. Then I have a week off, and then on April 20 I go back for the second stage chemo. That will last three weeks.

Which is to say that I’ll be more or less away from blogging for the next six weeks or so. But don’t worry! MoJo will keep things going with regular posts from staff members and periodic guest posts from all the bloggers who have been part of the linkfests back and forth with me over the years. It should be fun.

As far as I know, I’ll have the technical capability to blog during this entire period. So I’ll probably pop in now and again when I have something to say and the energy to say it with. With any luck, I’ll be back completely by June. See you on the other side.

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
