Friday Cat Blogging – 17 October 2008


FRIDAY CATBLOGGING….We’re in the middle of a mild Santa Ana condition right now, which means it’s been pretty warm this week. Despite this, Domino has taken to burrowing under the bedroom quilt for her afternoon snooze. So that’s what she’s doing on the left. On the right, Inkblot, having finally cottoned to the fact that something is going on underneath the blankets, heads over to check it out. Needless to say, this had potential for considerable merriment, but after taking a brief swipe at Domino’s paw, which was sticking out of the blanket, he got sort of addled and headed downstairs for a snack. That’s always been the real center of his universe, after all.

WE DON'T KNOW

What's going to happen next as the headlines grow crazier and more disconcerting by the day. But we do know the job of an independent, unrelenting press is more important than ever—and the ongoing commitment of MoJo readers to fight for a democracy where facts matter and all can participate is absolutely vital.

If you feel the urgency deep in your bones like we do, please consider signing up as a monthly donor during our fall pledge drive to support Mother Jones' fair and fearless reporting for the long haul (or make a one-time gift if that works better for you). The headlines may fade, but the need to investigate the powerful never will.
