Okay, compare these two situations and tell me what is wrong with this picture.
1) A woman offers a $10,000 reward for information about her father’s death. He was shot outside his suburban home; there were no witnesses.
2) There is a $100,000 reward for information about a man who tossed a woman’s poodle into traffic in San Jose after she hit his car.
$10,000 for a human life versus $100,000 for the life of a hairball with legs!
What on earth is wrong with us? We value our pets lives more than each other? This is disgusting! I mean, if I was picked up and thrown into traffic because the person I was driving with got into an accident, the only money that would be offered would be a reward to whomever threw me.
I am beginning to think that I am reincarnated and I have the soul of a very old bitter man with a walker, which he wields like a mace.
In other news: it’s cherry blossom time. Time once again that DC puts on a fresh coat of Spring, the city smells good, life is as it should be. Granted, the blossom’s are coming a bit early, but this is only a good thing for us residents; it means that touron’s won’t overrun our city asking questions like, “Where are the trees?” There is a down side to this years cherry blossoms, word is that the local beaver’s union is looking for Federal subsidies.
In other other news: Because St. John’s, Maryland, and Penn lost, my bracket is absolutely worthless. In fact, I imagine that most people’s picks are pretty shot.
