Friday Cat Blogging – 6 May 2011

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.

Domino was sunning herself in the doorway yesterday — it’s been in the high 80s all week here — and I happened to have the camera out when Inkblot decided he wanted to go inside. What a hulking presence! Domino is obviously not excited by the idea of letting him by, but as it turned out, all went smoothly. Over on the right, however, we see how to make Inkblot look positively puny: just put him inside a gigantic garden pot. Perspective is everything.

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.
