Friday Cat Blogging – 8 June 2012

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.

This has been a tough blogging week for me. The news has been slow, I’m still feeling inexplicably jetlagged, and I’m annoyed by my inability to come to grips with all the latest news about drone strikes and what I think about them. So catblogging is more than normally welcome today. On the left, we see the shadow silhouette of Domino as she perches herself on the table in front of a window. On the right, Inkblot is obviously still trying to recover from the trauma of spending two weeks in a kennel. He seems to be coming along pretty well, no?

Enjoy your weekend, everyone. I promise that next week will be better.

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America will move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
