"After last night's rain, my dog and I were taking our early morning walk and enjoying the sights and sounds of the beautiful birds in our area. We came upon the disturbing sight of a boy, no older than 14, with a BB gun and a bag full of ammo, aiming and shooting at robins and squirrels. Wouldn't his time before school be better spent by reading or checking over his homework?"
"The government is not going to do anything about fuel prices. There was an interview on TV with the big executives from Mobil and Exxon, and they say they can't find anything that they're doing wrong. The senators and congressmen are not for the poor people. They're for the rich oil companies."
"In three weeks my dogs and I will be homeless. I refuse to leave my two dogs, who have been by my side while I went through two bouts of cancer. They are my friends and my family. They did not abandon me and I will not abandon them. If there is any way that you could help, please let me know. My phone number is 301-991-5576. Please help us."
