Friday Cat Blogging – 20 March 2009

On the left, Inkblot is worried that Congress will consider him a fat cat and tax his evening dinner bonus away.  I told him it actually counts as straight salary in his case, so no worries.  On the right, we have a rare shot of Domino actually walking somewhere.  It’s not that she never does this, just that it’s hard to take a picture of it since she instantly makes a beeline for the camera if she sees it pointed in her direction.  This time I caught her just in time.

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.
