Friday Cat Blogging – 18 February 2011

I’d like to be able to say that Inkblot and Domino are firm supporters of the labor action currently unfolding in Wisconsin, but I’m afraid that would be a bit of a stretch. As you can see, they’ve already negotiated a pretty good deal for themselves, and collective action isn’t really in their nature. So we humans are on our own.

But speaking of cats, I’m pleased to report that 10 Downing Street once again has an official cat. Why? Because, it turns out, 10 Downing Street also has a few official rats. So they brought in Larry. Picture and story here.

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.
