Since May is Be Kind to Animals Month (real funny, Michael Vick jailers!), the team figured we'd share some pictures of the furballs we're extra-kind to.
Writing is just Ed Parry's day job.

Jim Guthrie may be our lead writer, but C+C are the leaders of his pack at home.

And segment producer/co-blog diva Sonya Houston got a "two-fur-one" deal; B+S are brothers. (No relation to the Felines Guthrie, though.)

Our AP Jason Reid (he of the 100% National Drivers Test) must be 7 feet tall...
So it was adorable to see his teeny little kitty Bella.

Looks CAN be deceiving. AP Dennis Lovello says, under those long droopy ears, Kona is one vicious Basset.

Be kind to animals,month 🙂 I loooove it!
Do not forget to SpayNeuter and SAVE ONE!!!
If we all do our part,there will be, NO MORE,sad stories!
Every year i sit and watch all the fanfare about different colleges graduations and the notable speakers at their commencements (and the controversy that surrounds them ie: Obama and N.D). all the news shows say what a good future they have or how it will be hard for them to find a good job in this economy, how they worked so hard, showing the grads moving out, blah blah blah. But one thing I have never heard on the news in my 61 years is anything about high school grads, except for an occasional bleep about an inner city school where a foundation donates money.
The reason I bring this up is that it's a lot harder for a kid to stay in high school than it is for someone to stay in college these days. Even if they do graduate where are they going to work? " Do you want fries with that?"
I graduated in 1967 and lucked out. I got a good job with the telephone company. I made pretty good money and was able to retire at age 47, with a fairly good pension and health care. Companies like that will only hire college grads now, won't give them the benefits
I had, and will only keep them employed for as long as they need them.
Part of "W's" legacy is that there are no good paying jobs left for blue collar workers of any age. It doesn't matter whether you're fresh out of high school or have been out of work for seven years since your employer shipped your job over seas. Thankfully Obama is trying to change that.
So keep this in mind when you are all talking about your graduation, about how it was when you were looking for you first job or first appartment. Many of your viewers haven't had that experience due to lot lot of reasons such as not having the money for tuition or having to help support his or her family because one or more of the parents have lost their job.
Wishing you ALL every happiness this weekend and ALWAYS...
Schnell and Baron! I miss the doggies Carrie! I miss you too!
They desperately need baths this weekend - you're not gonna be in the area, are you? 🙂 Btw, congrats on the new job WDJ!
