Friday Cat Blogging – 14 January 2011

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.

It’s winter here in Southern California, which means bitterly cold temps plummeting into….oh, the low sixties sometimes. And that means Inkblot needs a blanket to burrow under. Today, he’s chosen an old American Airlines blanket that we reserve for his use. On the right, Scrabble Cat is helping Marian puzzle out her next play. Don’t ask me why, but as soon as we pull out the Scrabble board, Domino instantly jumps up on the table and starts roaming around for no apparent reason. At least, for no reason apparent to those of us stuck in the mundane four dimensions of human reality.

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.
