Is it finally Friday? I swear, it’s seemed like Friday ever since Monday. But now it finally is.

This is Hilbert in one of his favorite spots. In the late afternoon, when it’s time to bring in the cats for the day, Hilbert likes to run away and make us chase him. Most of the time, though, he only wants us to chase him this far, where he flops on the ground and demands a tummy rub. He’s then happy to be picked up and taken inside.

Hopper, on the other hand, is not so easily bribed. She likes being chased around because it’s fun. Sometimes the fun can last a tiringly long time. However, when we give up, all we have to do is close the door with a loud click. Within a minute she’ll be there demanding to know why she’s been locked out. We open the door and she scoots right in.

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.
