Friday Cat Blogging – 22 March 2013

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

Happy vernal equinox! Sure, I’m a couple of days late, but that’s cat time for you. They live on their own clock.

Today, I’m giving Domino a break from the rigors of weekly catblogging and highlighting my mother’s cats instead. On the left is Ditto (named, as you might recall, because when he was a kitten he looked just like one of my mother’s other cats). On the right is his brother Tillamook, whose naming origin should be fairly obvious. These pictures were taken last weekend, but obviously both of them were looking forward to spring even then.

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.
