FRIDAY CAT BLOGGING….Today is close-up day. As usual, Inkblot is far more cooperative in the camera department, which means that he gets a more interesting picture than Jasmine. There’s a lesson there for camera-shy humans as well.

And that’s it for the day. For the week, in fact. I’m on vacation until next weekend, and filling in for me will be fan favorite Steve Benen, proprietor of The Carpetbagger. Miscellenous editors of the Washington Monthly might also pop in occasionally. Just don’t start impeachment proceedings without me, OK? See you in a week.
