Reader speaks out for dog
You lured us with treats and we were hungry so we came to you. Then you held us down and tied us with duct tape. I saw and felt the evil as you threw us in the water. You let out an awful laugh as we struggled to survive.
I cried as my friends went under and drowned. I wondered, what did I do to you?
Then a good person came along and saved me. Now I’m with people with kind hearts who love me and let me love them.
I forgive you.
I hope that you find kind people too, that reach your heart and heal the hatred there.
Up in arms
When I read in Sunday's State newspaper about the rescue of Dara, the black Lab, I was thrilled. What kind of sick person or persons could do these horrible things to helpless animals who don't ask for much except love in this world?
Thank heavens that the public is up in arms and has offered rewards and I only wish that those responsible could be punished in the same fashion as they treated the dogs.
Mojo wants to know, are they Marxists?
Mojo, Mary and I have been out of town. Upon return, I settled in to read old newspapers (I'm old fashioned I guess, rather than get caught up on the web daily, I like the feel of newsprint in my hands). One of the papers was soggy. I knew what it was about and asked Mojo to come over. Yep, he had drooled over the editorial section. He was thinking about how to respond to the triad of Brock, Blenk and Haley (sounds like a law firm). The more he read the more he drooled and the more he drooled the more frustrated he got.
Should we comment on Brock's cannibal style of journalism that tends to eat folks up (those one million illegals are youngsters who came to our nation through no decision of their own and have made something of themselves through education, hard work and for some military service). Or should we point out to Blenk that the Biblical record and the teachings of all major denominations sees affordable, accessible health care as a human right? Or should Nikki be asked about her turning her back on an expansion of Medicaid that would bring SC nine dollars for every dollar spent and provide coverage for almost 400,000 poor folks?
What to do? Mojo and I put our heads together. Let’s look for a common thread.
Oddly enough we found that common thread watching TCM, the classic movie channel.
In the Marx Brothers’ movie Horse Feathers, Groucho plays the president of a college. We are introduced to him early in the movie when he sings the following: "I don't know what they have to say: It makes no difference anyway — Whatever it is, I'm against it! No matter what it is or who commenced it. I'm against it. Your proposition may be good, but let's have one thing understood — whatever it is, I'm against it! And even when you've changed or condensed it. I'm against it!"
They are against it! Does that make them Marxists?
