Spring is approaching, and after a bit of rain last weekend the weather has been lovely here in Southern California. On the left, after rolling around in the sun for a while, Domino poses with one of our legion of concrete rabbits. On the right, Inkblot is eating….something. Marian told me what it was last night, but now I’ve forgotten. But to Inkblot it seemed like a nice snack.

As for me, I’ve finished our vacation planning. Hooray! It’s a family affair scheduled for the second half of May, and we’re going to spend a week in Copenhagen visiting friends and then a week in Rome visiting the ruins. It’s the first long vacation Marian and I have taken since 2002, and my mother has never been to Rome. Should be fun.  

THE END...

of our fiscal year is Thursday, June 30, and we have a much larger fundraising gap than we can easily manage with only days left to go.

Right now is no time to come up short: If you value the hard-hitting, democracy-protecting, justice-advancing journalism you get from Mother Jones, please help us keep charging as hard as we possibly can with a much-needed and much-appreciated donation today.
