Meat on Meat

Baltimore Dog Magazine (Fall 2008) features an article entitled "The Raw Truth," chronicling a "new evolution" in dog feeding. Apparently the raw deer meet and chopped bones my girlfriend was feeding to Fido while housesitting is part of a brilliant discovery. Dogs don't just love raw meat, it's better for them. The irony is that our pampered canine children will now be eating the chopped pieces of their own animal species. It appears that dogs are inferior afterall- they're carnivrous. While we content ourselves with soy beef and rabbit food, our domestic beasts are feasting on animal blood. Savages!

Oh Google, My Darling

I was just wondering- for all the fun, interesting, and historical notes Google makes by altering it's logo, why the silence today?

Surely the greatest tragedy of modern American history deserves something.

There are a variety of strange and disturbing notions that I am picking up on, seven years down the road.

1) We, the United States of America, deserved 9-11, so we're actually embarassed by it

2) Bush has become such a villain in American eyes, and since 9-11 is practically his doing, we ignore it

3) What happened on September 11, 2001?

I wonder what sketchy knowledge, if any, my 14 year old students have of the event. Should I bring in pictures?
