On the left, this is surely what things would have looked like if Inkblot had lived in the Garden of Eden: Innocent, contented, free of all malice, and wanting nothing more than to commune with nature. Unless someone gets in the way of his food bowl.

And speaking of things horticultural, Marian recently constructed a square-foot garden, which I guess is all the rage these days. The one below has eight sections, and as you can see, Domino has her own personal square foot. Seriously. There’s nothing planted there because Domino loves it so much she needed to be lured to a spot where she wouldn’t crush the actual plants. Not only is it full of nice, lovely dirt, but during the late morning it’s also the sunniest patch in the house. For a few hours each day, it’s her home away from home.

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily bluster—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
