I had the bright idea today of doing an Andrew Sullivan-esque “View From Your Window,” except it would be a view of my cats through my windows. This worked fine for Inkblot, but unfortunately Domino is a little under the weather today and basically just wanted to curl up in her new favorite chair and sleep. So I let her sleep. On the plus side, her picture gives everyone a nice view of our new carpet, which is this year’s major Drum family contribution to stimulating consumer demand. So far the cats seem to approve.

SATURDAY MORNING UPDATE: Domino seems to be back to her old self today. Probably just ate something that didn’t agree with her.

ONE MORE QUICK THING:

Or at least we hope. It’s fall fundraising time, and we’re trying to raise $250,000 to help fund Mother Jones’ journalism during a shorter than normal three-week push.

If you’re reading this, a fundraising pitch at the bottom of an article, you must find our team’s reporting valuable and we hope you’ll consider supporting it with a donation of any amount right now if you can.

It’s really that simple. But if you’d like to read a bit more, our membership lead, Brian Hiatt, has a post for you highlighting some of our newsroom's impressive, impactful work of late—including two big investigations in just one day and covering voting rights the way it needs to be done—that we hope you'll agree is worth supporting.
