Ah, the glories of a wide angle lens. Domino looks like she’s a furry python or something. If furry pythons also had whiskers and paws, that is. Over on the right, we have a repeat of last week. What can I say? Inkblot was out in the garden again yesterday, Marian plonked him down on a rock, and this is the picture that came out. Anyway, I figure it won’t be spring forever, so we should enjoy the flowers while we can.

(And what is Inkblot looking at? Birds, of course. There’s a nest in our neighbor’s tree nearby and the birds get pretty territorial about the whole thing. But their strategy is bad. All their chirping and buzzing just makes Inkblot all the more curious. Luckily for them, he’s also gravity bound and has a short attention span. So they’re in no danger.)

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
