On the left, Domino is trying to figure out what happened to her squirrel. We’ve never had a squirrel in our backyard before, but yesterday a lovely hazel-colored specimen zipped up a tree, zipped down and into another one, zipped up that tree, and then zipped down to the fence and zipped off. Domino was mesmerized. On the right, Inkblot, as usual, is clueless about what’s going on spending some quality time thinking about his next campaign white paper. I think it has to do with loan guarantees to solar-powered cat food companies or something. He’s worried that in this crucial industrial sector the Chinese are eating our lunch, literally. Perhaps some nice squirrel stew would have made him feel better.

ONE MORE QUICK THING:

Or at least we hope. It’s fall fundraising time, and we’re trying to raise $250,000 to help fund Mother Jones’ journalism during a shorter than normal three-week push.

If you’re reading this, a fundraising pitch at the bottom of an article, you must find our team’s reporting valuable and we hope you’ll consider supporting it with a donation of any amount right now if you can.

It’s really that simple. But if you’d like to read a bit more, our membership lead, Brian Hiatt, has a post for you highlighting some of our newsroom's impressive, impactful work of late—including two big investigations in just one day and covering voting rights the way it needs to be done—that we hope you'll agree is worth supporting.
