Friday Cat Blogging – 9 August 2013


Domino was supervising my blogging-related program activities earlier this week, which mostly consisted of making it hard to use the mouse so that I had no choice but to pay more attention to her. As usual, it worked. The gimlet-eyed among you will notice on the far left a notepad that’s fallen over, a sure sign that Domino has been around. That little yellow pad is her absolute favorite place on my desk to scratch her chin.

This is Shark Week on the Discovery Channel, and my sister informs me that it’s also Shark Cat Week on YouTube. As near as I can tell, this is traditionally celebrated by dressing your cat in a shark costume and then letting it ride around the kitchen on a Roomba. Go figure. As it happens, I need to buy a new vacuum cleaner, and until now I hadn’t been considering a Roomba. But maybe I should.

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.
