Here Is a Video of an Entire Wedding Party Falling Into a Lake


“Honey.”

“Doll.”

“I like you.”

“I like you!”

“No, really, I really like you.”

“I really really like you!”

“I love you, to be honest.”

“Well, I’m in love with you!”

“I want to marry you.”

“I want to marry you today!”

“I want to marry you right now!”

“We’re on a train. Do people get married on trains?”

“No, but this train is taking us to a plane. Do people get married on planes?”

“No, but that plane is taking us to a lake. Do people get married on—”

“DOCKS!”

“What?”

“Docks! Yes, people get married on docks. It’s true. Let’s get married today on the dock! At the lake! The old rickety dock!”

“Uhhh…what about, like, on the beach?”

“No, on the dock! It’s genius!”

“Wait, but—”

“…you don’t want to marry me on the dock?”

“No, I do.”

“I love you.”

“I love you, as I said, but, well, it’s rickety.”

“My grandfather built that dock.”

“Well—”

“I loved you…”

“…”

“…”

“Ok, yes, I’d love to marry you on the dock.”

“WE’RE GETTING MARRIED!”

“Oh my God.

DOES IT FEEL LIKE POLITICS IS AT A BREAKING POINT?

It sure feels that way to me, and here at Mother Jones, we’ve been thinking a lot about what journalism needs to do differently, and how we can have the biggest impact.

We kept coming back to one word: corruption. Democracy and the rule of law being undermined by those with wealth and power for their own gain. So we're launching an ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project to do deep, time-intensive reporting on systemic corruption, and asking the MoJo community to help crowdfund it.

We aim to hire, build a team, and give them the time and space needed to understand how we got here and how we might get out. We want to dig into the forces and decisions that have allowed massive conflicts of interest, influence peddling, and win-at-all-costs politics to flourish.

It's unlike anything we've done, and we have seed funding to get started, but we're looking to raise $500,000 from readers by July when we'll be making key budgeting decisions—and the more resources we have by then, the deeper we can dig. If our plan sounds good to you, please help kickstart it with a tax-deductible donation today.

Thanks for reading—whether or not you can pitch in today, or ever, I'm glad you're with us.
