Friday Cat Blogging – 3 May 2019

Let’s give Hopper and Hilbert a break this week and check in on my mother’s cats. This is a rare sighting of Luna, who does not usually allow strangers to get within camera distance. As you can see, she’s keeping a close eye on me even though I was about 30 feet away at the time. After I took this picture I moved very carefully a couple of feet toward her and sat down in a chair. That was too much and she took off like a shot. But at least I got this picture.


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.
