Re: “Man's Real Best Friend

This is a false dichotomy. Animal welfare is the issue. Of course they don't have the same rights to vote or drive a car or own guns that we do.
Those rights are irrelevant to their nature. But rabbits should not be blinded for the cosmetics industry and the recent prop on the horrendous
conditions in which farm animals are raised was long overdue. And Maoists shouting for humans !!! The man killed a hundred million Chinese.
Of course a small time leftist intellectual crook like Jay Youngdahl could never figure that out.
Animals are friends to the cosmetics industry in the same way that slave laborers in the Gulag are friends to Stalin.
I willingly spend money on my cats, I do not prefer to spend money on street bums.

Steve, this is brilliant and I think very well thought out. I don't see any problems with the plan. Also, I've got another idea for you. I've learned that Bank of America doesn't anchor it's pens to the customer desk like they used to, this could be a great source of office supplies. Combine it with the free calendar from the local deli and you've got you office almost totally stocked. Dan J.

Re: “A Bold Move for Ron Dellums

It seems clear this is an April Fool's fictional "report," but regarding the Berkeley Peace and Justice Commission, it's possible readers may not realize that it's made-up satire (because it's frankly not very creatively written), so please let me clarify: The resolution about the military recruiting station in Berkeley was sent to the Council through regular channels, including being published in the Councilmembers' packet for the Council meeting and on the City Web site ahead of the Council meeting. Some Council members may not have read their packets, and speaking for myself, as Chairperson of the Commission at that time, I failed to take adequate account of some inflammatory language inserted at the last minute by one commissioner — but there was no trickery of any kind. We now return you to your regularly scheduled (if not very interesting) satire. ...
