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?

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.
