Friday Cat Blogging – 15 April 2011

I like this picture of Inkblot a lot. So much, in fact, that I’m running it bigger than usual and turning over the entire day to him. But all is not lost for Domino lovers: if you look closely, you can see her snoozing in the background.

But that’s not all! Today I have a special shoutout for Gert, a faithful reader from Minnesota and Florida who’s celebrating her 80th birthday this weekend. Gert’s a former librarian and technophile who, according to daughter Marie, “took to computers and the Internet like a duck to water….When we were little she used to bring us library books home to read; now she sends email links to articles collected from an astonishing variety of sources. She can’t get enough news about current events; she’s been a political activist from back when they were hoping the ERA would pass.” Sounds like my kind of reader. Have a great 80th, Gert.

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.
