Friday Cat Blogging – 22 June 2018

Meet Professor Marc’s cats. They are both majestic Siberian furballs who like to chase down toys. Last weekend, while I was playing with them, Moloko (on the right) retreated across the living room to get a wider view of things. Then Mocha wandered in and plonked down in front to check things out. For a few moments, they looked as if they were posing for an official photo in Buckingham Palace. I’m honestly not sure I’ve seen anything more regal looking in my life. A crown would just ruin it. Only humans need all that regalia.


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.
