Go, Pat, Go! Mr. Wheel of Fortune attacks Frank Rich on ObamaCare. Who next? Vanna White?
Reuters published a sad story about the high kill rate (70%) of shelter dogs in Japan, as opposed to countries like Britain (less than 10%). Oddly, no mention of the U.S. Both of my dogs came from a county shelter 13-14 years ago, back when there were few private rescues, and no resource such as [...]
This story has been slightly under the radar. The Department of No Education is buying shotguns for its police force. According to documentation, the Department of Education’s office of Inspector General ordered for delivery – probably this week sometime – 27 Remington 870 12-gauge shotguns with 14 inch barrels for officials in just two offices.

This is the established response of politicians and [...]
I came across this on the web this week: Until one has loved an animal, part of their soul remains unawakened If I Didn’t Have a Dog… I could walk around the yard barefoot in safety. All flat surfaces, clothing, furniture & cars would be free of hair. When the doorbell rings, it wouldn’t sound [...]
Robert Wenzel has a funny post at his website. He notes that with March being “Women’s History Month,” the Treasury Department, “in partnership with The White House Council on Women and Girls, will convene a Women in Finance Symposium in celebration of Women’s History Month.” Here’s his point: It is very instructive to review the [...]
