Friday Catblogging – 16 July 2010

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.

Inkblot and Domino are on vacation this week. (Not that you can really tell the difference, mind you.) So today we have a guest cat. This is Ditto, one of my mother’s four critters, lounging in the bay window above her computer. I took the picture while I was over there doing an inventory of her IT needs prior to replacing her old PC with a shiny new one. Conclusion: moving all her stuff to a new machine shouldn’t be too hard.

Yes, yes, famous last words. We’ll see. In the meantime, wouldn’t you like to take an online survey? Sure you would! We’re running a reader survey here, and although it’s got a bunch of annoying demographic questions, they’re easy to answer and the whole thing doesn’t take more then ten minutes. For your trouble, we’ll send you a free reusable Chico grocery bag and enter you in a drawing for a $100 gift certificate to Patagonia. Thanks!

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
