Marian went to Crate & Barrel the other day and got something for everyone. For us, new soup bowls. For Domino, a fabulous new hidey hole. The next day, however, it was back upstairs to snooze in the sunny spot by the bedroom window. Unfortunately, Inkblot decided to join her, and eventually his roving paw got the best of him. This all turned out badly a few seconds after I snapped this picture, but Inkblot seemed pretty pleased with himself. After all, when Domino fled he was able to take over the entire sunny patch for himself. And he did.

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.
