Friday Catblogging – 16 July 2010

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.

Inkblot and Domino are on vacation this week. (Not that you can really tell the difference, mind you.) So today we have a guest cat. This is Ditto, one of my mother’s four critters, lounging in the bay window above her computer. I took the picture while I was over there doing an inventory of her IT needs prior to replacing her old PC with a shiny new one. Conclusion: moving all her stuff to a new machine shouldn’t be too hard.

Yes, yes, famous last words. We’ll see. In the meantime, wouldn’t you like to take an online survey? Sure you would! We’re running a reader survey here, and although it’s got a bunch of annoying demographic questions, they’re easy to answer and the whole thing doesn’t take more then ten minutes. For your trouble, we’ll send you a free reusable Chico grocery bag and enter you in a drawing for a $100 gift certificate to Patagonia. Thanks!

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 bluster—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.
