Friday Cat Blogging – 17 July 2020

Blogging has been slow for the past few days because my mother is now home from the hospital and I have taken up a second career as an eldercare nurse in training. This mostly means running around between doctors, making sure mom eats, and bullying her into doing some physical therapy. And to be honest, judging from my quick glances at the news, I don’t think I’ve missed much aside from the usual Trump idiocies.

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.
