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!

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 crazy—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.
