Friday Cat Blogging – 1 November 2013

Sometimes catblogging is a last-minute affair. Yesterday afternoon I suddenly realized I hadn’t taken this week’s picture, and the light was fading. So I grabbed this week’s quilt, tossed it onto the grass outside, and plonked Domino down on it. She did not cooperate, so I only got a few shots to choose from. This is the best of the lot. The quilt is called Amish Shadow, and it’s machine pieced and hand quilted.

In the end, though, I did come through with catblogging today. Why? Because here at MoJo, we’re all about giving our readers what they want. So why not subscribe to the magazine? It doesn’t feature any catblogging (yet….), but it does feature lots of great reporting six times a year for the low, low price of only $12. And subscriptions make great holiday gifts too! Here are the links to subscribe:

It sure feels that way to me, and here at Mother Jones, we’ve been thinking a lot about what journalism needs to do differently, and how we can have the biggest impact.

We kept coming back to one word: corruption. Democracy and the rule of law being undermined by those with wealth and power for their own gain. So we're launching an ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project to do deep, time-intensive reporting on systemic corruption, and asking the MoJo community to help crowdfund it.

We aim to hire, build a team, and give them the time and space needed to understand how we got here and how we might get out. We want to dig into the forces and decisions that have allowed massive conflicts of interest, influence peddling, and win-at-all-costs politics to flourish.

It's unlike anything we've done, and we have seed funding to get started, but we're looking to raise $500,000 from readers by July when we'll be making key budgeting decisions—and the more resources we have by then, the deeper we can dig. If our plan sounds good to you, please help kickstart it with a tax-deductible donation today.

Thanks for reading—whether or not you can pitch in today, or ever, I'm glad you're with us.
