Friday: Cat, Blogging


With Kevin out on vacation, I volunteered my cat, George, for some Friday blogging action. (I usually blog over on Mother Jones‘ environmental blog, Blue Marble.) 

George is way more involved in the lives of the humans he shares his home with than any other cat I’ve encountered. Most cats ignore you, or only occasionally deign to hang out. But George is always all up in your business, trying to do what you’re doing. Including (actually, especially) when you’re trying to blog:

Kevin is back next week, so you’ll get the full Inkblot and Domino treatment. In the meantime, happy Friday.

Journalism That Challenges Conventional Wisdom

It's what you expect from MoJo, and this past year has made clear that the dangers for independent, critical reporting are at a record level because of a perfect storm of economic and political assaults.

That's why we're setting a stretch goal to raise $350,000 from readers like you by December 31. Please join us with a tax-deductible donation—or read why this moment, December 2017, feels so critical for the survival of investigative journalism.
