Friday Cat Blogging – 5 September 2008


FRIDAY CATBLOGGING….TGIF, my friends, TGIF.

As usual, though, Felis catus has lessons for us all. Things are not as bad as they seem. We can all get along. A good night’s sleep — followed by a good day’s sleep — will make the world seem brighter. The only culture war worth fighting is the one between Friskies and Fancy Feast.

Which reminds me: does the Palin family own any critters? Are they dog people or cat people? Do they own hamsters? A fish tank? Or what? Why has the liberal media let us down on probing into this critical question?

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.
