No, we should not limit the number of pets allowed in the city limits. One large dog may kill another animal as easily as five small dogs. Do not penalize all dog owners for the sake of one or everyone will lose. If responsible people are limited to the number of pets we can own, the amount of animals on the streets and in shelters will rise and so will the need to euthanize them. It comes down to the responsibility of each individual owner to control their pets.
To Victoria of Victoria: You must have been mistaken as to where the beating and kicking of a 15-year-old boy, who was also handcuffed, was done by police who were plainly mad because he tried to run, and they took it out on him. It is not a third-world country where this is done all of the time, but in America, where we follow the law and are supposedly more civilized. He was found guilty of burglary, but still did not deserve this treatment by those who are supposed to uphold the laws.
I just want to talk about the poor job the city of Victoria did when the ice was here. There were a lot of wrecks, and the roads were all slick, and there were no city workers putting out gravel or nothing - only on the bridges. The roads were messed up, not just the bridges, so this was a poor job by the city of Victoria during the ice storm.
I really like to read Julie Zavala's "My Turn." I get tears in my eyes every time I read it. It reminds me of my father. God bless her, Robert and her father.
I agree with Marilyn about Julie Zavala's blog. The things that she writes on there are very educating, especially for people with Alzheimer's. A lot of people need to know that Alzheimer's is a serious thing, and there are a lot of people who are in denial. And people need to read it and find out what it is about and that it is a very serious illness. It affects both the caregivers and their families.
I disagree with Don about an African-American family eating armadillos because they were poor.
I am Hispanic, and I am not poor, and I grew up eating baked armadillos. As long as they were clean, a lot of people ate them.
I lot of people ate armadillos. You didn't have to be poor.
I wanted to comment to Michael of Victoria. Global warming is very much real. Haven't you ever heard of the Ice Age?
