Friday Cat Blogging – 5 March 2010

Today we have twin cats. On the left, Domino found a patch of sunshine this morning, fell asleep, and then discovered that it was half gone when she woke up. On the right, Inkblot, instead of chasing Domino away and usurping her sunny patch, ambled upstairs to find his own piece of sunshine. But the same thing happened to him. The sun gods are fickle that way.

And now a request from the cat gods. As some of you know, MoJo emails out a weekly newsletter that includes the best of this blog for the week plus a brand new post exclusive to the newsletter plus a cat of the week from one of my readers. (You can sign up for it over on the right, a little ways down the page.) However, our stock of cat photos has run dry. So if you’d like to show off your favorite feline to the world, email a picture of your cat(s) to motherjonescats@gmail.com. Be sure to include names, ages, and whatever other tidbits strike your fancy. It’ll show up in a newsletter soon. Thanks!

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.
