Happy New Year!


HAPPY NEW YEAR!….As you can see, Inkblot is gazing confidently in the direction of 2009. Or something. You sort of have to use your imagination here.

(I gotta tell you, it’s hell getting these cats to do something visually interesting on holiday occasions. If it’s not dinner, they’re not interested. Maybe I need a parakeet or something.)

In any case, Happy New Year from both humans and felines here at Chez Drum. It’s just about 6 pm here on the west coast, guests are starting to arrive, dinner will be on the table in a little bit, and it’s time for me to write my final blog post of 2008. So here’s hoping that 2009 turns out to be better than any of us expect. Huzzah!

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
