FRIDAY CATBLOGGING….We’re entering a cold snap here in Southern California, with temps forecast to plummet to a brisk 75 or so this afternoon. Time to bundle up!

Actually, Inkblot has been shedding for the past few days, as our Santa Ana-induced record warmth has fooled him into thinking that summer has come. Hopefully he’ll figure out soon that it’s just a trick. I wouldn’t want him to lose his lovely winter coat too soon.

In other weather-related cat news (how’s that for a smooth segue?), Danish reporter Ole K. sends along “Jörg Kachelmann und Lupin” for your YouTube viewing pleasure. Note hint of action to come at about the 0:17 mark. Very civilized, those German weather forecasters.

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily bluster—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
