FRIDAY CATBLOGGING….TGIF, my friends, TGIF.

As usual, though, Felis catus has lessons for us all. Things are not as bad as they seem. We can all get along. A good night’s sleep — followed by a good day’s sleep — will make the world seem brighter. The only culture war worth fighting is the one between Friskies and Fancy Feast.

Which reminds me: does the Palin family own any critters? Are they dog people or cat people? Do they own hamsters? A fish tank? Or what? Why has the liberal media let us down on probing into this critical question?

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
