Friday Cat Blogging – 21 March 2014


In the previous post I mocked Richard Branson’s advice that “You only live one life, so I would do the thing that you are going to enjoy.” However, I was referring only to human beings in that post. Cats are different. Domino has taken Branson’s advice fully to heart and does only things that she enjoys. For example, curling up on her favorite blue blanket and giving me the eye. She enjoys that! A few minutes later she will follow one of her other passions and curl up on the patio. Then she’ll curl up on my lap. You get the idea. She is fully committed to doing only what she loves.

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.
