Friday Cat Blogging – 8 June 2012

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

This has been a tough blogging week for me. The news has been slow, I’m still feeling inexplicably jetlagged, and I’m annoyed by my inability to come to grips with all the latest news about drone strikes and what I think about them. So catblogging is more than normally welcome today. On the left, we see the shadow silhouette of Domino as she perches herself on the table in front of a window. On the right, Inkblot is obviously still trying to recover from the trauma of spending two weeks in a kennel. He seems to be coming along pretty well, no?

Enjoy your weekend, everyone. I promise that next week will be better.

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.
