I just watched that slideshow from the WCVB website and checked out the link one of the othersRead More provided.. Those numbers are alarming. It is not even close. It is pretty clear that the fighting dog is not out of this type of dog. Scary stuff.

@suz.... "a certain type of clientele"? Which type is that? Cesar Millan, Jessica Biehl,Read More Alicia Silverstone, Helen Keller, Dr. Phil, Ken Howard, Andrew Vachss, Teddy Roosevelt, Ira Glass, Rachael Ray, Jamie Foxx, Jon Stewart, General George Patton.... probably aren't the "type of clientele" that you envisioned as being Pit Bull owners and supporters. I own two rescued dogs - one Chihuahua-Jack Russel mix and one PB.

Suz not too bright are you?.... I'm just sayin'.

What I think is really scary and a public health threat is the violence PEOPLE do to pit bulls. WeRead More kill millions of them every year. They are tortured in fighting rings, look at what Vick did. Humans are a very dangerous breed. THere should be laws or something to protect the public--and animals--- from people.

#Kim, all the more reason for restrictions, such as spaying and neutering. Less animals to be hurtRead More in fighting pits or put in the pound, only to be put down.

Good to know the State House is close to naming the Fluffernutter the official state sandwich.Read More Disgusting and it cannot be tolerated.

Thank you for writing this article. This story needs to continue to be covered.

I have been at the State House the last few days, and put in a formal request for a limited numberRead More of MA constituents who are following the case to meet with Governor Patrick. Stay tuned!

@Tim H: Such a great point on the text-to-speech. I haven't explored this fully yet, but I justRead More started an Audible account. I downloaded a Doctor Who book with my free credit. But I got the Audible account for precisely what you said: Being able to read, switch to listening, then go back to reading. Maybe another blog post is in the works......

@Danielle, the audible only works good on your smartphone or an MP3 player. You can use it at theRead More gym when reading may not be as convenient (try rowing while reading -- listening works). Or go for a walk outdoors while listening to a book... just be careful crossing streets. I believe there are pronunciations issues with the text-to-speech as it tries to simulate speech instead of being an actual recording like the audio books. Each has it's advantages.

@Danielle, thank you for pointing out that ebooks are available from the library. Here is the linkRead More to the digital media catalog for libraries in the Minuteman Library Network http://digital.minlib.net They have bestsellers, classics, how-to, etc. As well as downloadable audiobooks which you can listen to on your phone, mp3 player, etc.

Mad as hell... April 22, 2014 at 11:28 pm
Savecritters...I appreciate your concern but like I said you may want to make sure your homeownersRead More insurance will cover that dog. When you're on the receiving end of a pit bull dog's attack it's hard to fathom the logic in owning one.
Savecritters....you lost the argument as soon as you wrote "...owned by countless movieRead More stars..." What the hell does that prove?

Yeah, Miley Cyrus' pit bull killed her little doggie last fall. The other dog that just died...it'sRead More being covered up how it died. That's why all the articles that mention coyote say "allegedly".

Boss Hogg and Anthony. Thank you both. Seeing where it's coming from I'll take that as a compliment.

Wrong blog Igor, but I do agree with your opinions on this particular blog.
