Friday Cat Blogging – 11 March 2011

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that the cats have lately become very lap-oriented right after dinner, and this has had a side effect: Marian has become quite attached to taking pictures of me buried under cats. So here’s the latest. On the left, I’m slouched low in my reading chair so that Inkblot can settle comfortably on my stomach while I try to read. Sometimes I can, sometimes I can’t. On the right, Domino is showing off her less intellectual side, rolling around in the sun on the back patio. One way or another, though, everyone’s happy.

THANK YOU.

We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
