This picture of Domino is one of my favorites ever. I couldn’t really tell you why. It just seems so perfectly feline. (However, she wasn’t staring in the window because she wanted me to open the door and let her in. That’s usually the reason, but this time it turned out she was engaged with some sort of insect on the front porch and wasn’t trying to get my attention at all. She just wanted to catch her bug.) Over on the right, Inkblot has burrowed himself under a quilt, something that’s suddenly attracted his interest just this week. I guess the weather must be turning colder. He didn’t really do the job right, though, so as soon as I finished taking pictures of him I lowered the quilt so he could have a more cave-like hidey hole. He seemed pleased.

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
