I watched the news this morning

I watched the “news” this morning. Chicken Little ran around squawking Two women talked amiably after describing scenes of horrific violence. A homeless puppy was found cared for and now needs a “forever” home. Thousands called in looking to adopt it. A homeless veteran was stepped over in the entrance to a shelter he/she was not cared for or allowed entrance. Three kittens sang “Jingle Bells” Chicken Little squawked a bit more Climate change, global warming yadayada The weather persons told me of storms in the Midwest, floods in the south and high temps in Arizona…. I had to look out my window to get the weather report here. The station manager made a Public Service Announcement. Paraphrased : “If you’d all just do as you’re told everything would be just fine”. (the commercials were for Erectile disfunction, tampons, birth control and condoms….oh….and childrens breakfast cereal)) John G. Lawless 1/4/2022

This is how we treat our dogs and our vets - sadly. Well done.

I like how the childrens' breakfast cereal fits in so well with the other products advertised. ~ Seasoned Bureaucratic Program Planner
