Inkblot and Domino are on vacation this week. (Not that you can really tell the difference, mind you.) So today we have a guest cat. This is Ditto, one of my mother’s four critters, lounging in the bay window above her computer. I took the picture while I was over there doing an inventory of her IT needs prior to replacing her old PC with a shiny new one. Conclusion: moving all her stuff to a new machine shouldn’t be too hard.

Yes, yes, famous last words. We’ll see. In the meantime, wouldn’t you like to take an online survey? Sure you would! We’re running a reader survey here, and although it’s got a bunch of annoying demographic questions, they’re easy to answer and the whole thing doesn’t take more then ten minutes. For your trouble, we’ll send you a free reusable Chico grocery bag and enter you in a drawing for a $100 gift certificate to Patagonia. Thanks!

Fact:

In-depth journalism that investigates the powerful takes real money and is so damn important right now.But it doesn’t take a Mother Jones investigation to know that billionaires and corporations will never fund the type of reporting (like they do politicians) we do that exists to help bring about change. Instead, our mission-driven journalism is made possible by people power, and has been for 46 years now since our founding as a non-profit.

In “TITLE TK” Monica Bauerlein writes about the perilous moment we’re in, and why it’s so important that we raise $325,000 by the time November’s midterms are decided so we can be ready to throw everything we have at the big issues facing the nation no matter what happens.
