Today is Domino day.  It’s hard to get good pictures of a pure black cat like Domino, but the light was hitting her nicely when I took this picture and it shows her at her best.  So let us all admire Domino and her beautiful white whiskers today.  The other guy will be back next week.

And speaking of light, has anyone tried these new Pharox LED light bulbs?  They seem very cool.  Is the illumination good?  How much light do they give off compared to an ordinary 60 watt incandescent?  Do they come on immediately or do they need to warm up a bit like CFLs?  I know what the specs say, but I’m curious if anyone has any personal experience to share.

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
