A thousand words at a time...

The Times-Picayune asked me to write an op-ed piece. And they wanted it to be about animals. I was pretty convinced I had nothing left to say on the subject, but then FEMA announced their plans to use therapy dogs in the shelters of homeless Katrina victims. Everything fell into place. But I seem to write everything in 1000 word chunks these days, so there were 250 words that I had to cut out--mostly information on the state of the LA-SPCA and some of what I did in my attempts to save the dog in question. But the short version is just as good as the extended cut. And you can read it here:The Times-Picayune.
