Friday Car Blogging – 2 May 2014

Some of you may recall that I’ve been threatening to buy a new car for a while. Well, I finally did. It’s a blue-gray Mazda 3 with all the modern amenities, and I like it a lot. Unfortunately, Domino doesn’t. As you can imagine, I had grand plans for her to perch regally on the hood for Friday catblogging this week, but she was having none of it. In fact, she couldn’t get back to solid ground fast enough. So I’m afraid this is the best I could get. Technically, it’s still catblogging, though. After all, the car is merely a technologically advanced cat platform. Right?


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
