All of this has happened before

The good news: there was an arrest in the Kiya/Puppy Doe case in Massachusetts.

The bad news, and why I’m not linking to a story: every story on this subject will show a photo of that scarred, mutilated, emaciated puppy, and it will upset me. It would be one thing if she survived. She didn’t. They put her down not long after that photo was taken. it’s one thing to look at pictures of a scarred, starving, sad dog when there’s a happy ending.

The happiest ending is maybe that the person who beat her serves some time in prison,  and animal advocates work to get stronger animal cruelty laws passed in her name. It won’t stop this from happening again and again.

I just wish they didn’t show that picture on every article about her. It won’t get the attention of someone who doesn’t care, but upsets me a lot.

You know, the great religious leaders of humanity.

My former colleagues over at the TU had the least fun kind of animal visitor today.

I’m just not that into Hhjjh

I just got broken up with via text message. I suppose I should be upset, but I have no idea who this person is. They live in Rochester. When I asked who they are, they said “Hhjjh.” I guess this relationship was doomed from the beginning.

Star-crossed lovers and all that.

I had the good fortune to sign up for Gmail relatively early, which gave me a very simple e-mail address. The problem is that at least two other people also think that it is their e-mail address. It is not. I am so tired of misdirected messages.
