Friday Cat Blogging – 17 September 2010

This is pre-dinnertime catblogging. Every day, starting around 4:30 in the afternoon, both cats make their way into the living room and start looking ostentatiously bored (Domino, on the left) or ostentatiously cute (Inkblot, on the right). Eventually they get fed. According to me, it’s because the clock strikes five and that’s dinnertime. According to them, it’s because the bored/cute act works. So the postmodernists are right: we all make our own realities, and who’s to say which one is really true?

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
