Friday Cat Blogging – 8 June 2012

This has been a tough blogging week for me. The news has been slow, I’m still feeling inexplicably jetlagged, and I’m annoyed by my inability to come to grips with all the latest news about drone strikes and what I think about them. So catblogging is more than normally welcome today. On the left, we see the shadow silhouette of Domino as she perches herself on the table in front of a window. On the right, Inkblot is obviously still trying to recover from the trauma of spending two weeks in a kennel. He seems to be coming along pretty well, no?

Enjoy your weekend, everyone. I promise that next week will be better.

THE BIG QUESTION...

as we head into 2020 is whether politics and media will be a billionaires’ game, or a playing field where the rest of us have a shot. That's what Mother Jones CEO Monika Bauerlein tackles in her annual December column—"Billionaires Are Not the Answer"—about the state of journalism and our plans for the year ahead.

We can't afford to let independent reporting depend on the goodwill of the superrich: Please help Mother Jones build an alternative to oligarchy that is funded by and answerable to its readers. Please join us with a tax-deductible, year-end donation so we can keep going after the big stories without fear, favor, or false equivalency.
