Friday Cat Blogging – 15 June 2012

According to the EXIF data on this photo, it was taken on Wednesday at 4:44 PM. What you’re seeing is the Dinner Stare™, designed to make it clear that the cats will brook no tardiness in producing dinner promptly at 5:00. They are not amused that instead of making preparations, I’m sitting on my butt watching some stupid TV show.

Needless to say, dinner was produced on time. By 5:02 it was gone. The Late Night Snack Stare™ commenced at about 8:30.

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.
