Friday Cat Blogging – 20 December 2013

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


This is the second of Marian’s watercolor heart quilts. (You saw the other one in August, and yet another heart-themed quilt on Valentine’s Day.) It’s machine pieced and machine quilted. It’s also nearly our last quilt of the year. There’s one more to go next Friday, which will make for a grand total of 23 quilts if I’ve counted correctly, and then in 2014 we’ll return to garden-variety catblogging. In the meantime, enjoy your weekend and watch out for the shopping mobs.

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.
