Friday Cat Blogging – 29 August 2008


FRIDAY CATBLOGGING….I can’t let Palin fever distract me from more important duties, can I? And what’s more important than catblogging? On the left, Inkblot is cruising the fence, looking for a branch to scratch himself on. On the right (taken a few minutes before), Domino is napping on the garden bench while his majesty snoozes in the background.

By the way, one unanticipated benefit of the new blog is its sheer size. Those of you who have been begging for years for larger catblogging pictures finally have them. Maybe still not as grand and glorious as you (and the cats) would like, but bigger than they used to be. Enjoy!

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
