No quilt today! We have a lot of quilts around our house, but we don’t actually have 52 of them, so there were always bound to be some missed weeks in this year of quiltblogging. These missed weeks will appear randomly, mostly depending on whether I have an alternate catblogging photo that I want to put up. This week I do: a rare action shot of Domino jumping down off the fence after a morning stroll. She jumped down onto a pile of chairs covered by a tarp, and then sort of slid down the tarp until she got to the edge and fell the rest of the way to the ground. Nothing was hurt except her dignity. It would have made for good video if I’d been quick enough on the shutter finger to think of it. I wasn’t, though, so you’ll just have to use your imaginations.

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 crazy—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.
