I've been eating this food for years and I love it. There are simply no reasons to have animals killed to gratify a whim for good eats.
I may be on your Police Dispatch next week. TPD may be looking for me after the manager of the Pet Club Tucson told me to "GET OUT OF MY STORE!", and called the police when I refused to do so.
At 9:15 this morning, I had just enough time to stop there and pick up a bag of dog food before meeting friends for breakfast at Robert's. I've been buying her food there or at the Broadway store for years because Wonderdog has allergies and needs grain-free (read: expensive) food and I'm kind of locked into buying it from PC because after you buy 10 bags, your 11th bag is free, and I'm into my 6th bag an the way to my free one.
I brought the bag of AvoDerm up to the counter, held out my $60.00 cash and the cashier asked me for my name. I told him, "No, it's OK. I'm paying cash." He said he still needs my name for "the system", but I told him again that I'm paying cash and I'll just hang onto the receipt for when I bring the others in to get my free bag. He said something like it doesn't work that way ( despite my doing it that way for YEARS!) and, again, I told him I'm just paying cash. He refused, at which point I said loudly, "This is fucking BULLSHIT!", at which time he made the managerial decision to insist that I leave.
(If you don't believe any of this, there's a camera right above the entrance door for just such situations when we 'troublemakers' want to spend cash at Pet Club.)
So what does a person do here, except to say, "No." That was the point at which he said he'll call the police and have me ejected. Now, I don't know if he did actually call them, but he appeared to be talking to somebody who was asking him questions about the situation and about me. (I helped him with my correct age when he estimated too low.)
After some verbal badinage between me and 3 employees, I simply ran out of time in order to get to my appointment on time, and decided to leave, with the manager calling me a coward several times for not engaging him in a fight. (REALLY- this is all on their video!) He even followed me outside, calling me a coward again and recording me and my license plate.
You buy a dog or cat from a 'pet store' and you kill a dog or cat at a 'shelter' It really is just that simple.
Actually, it's good that fewer students are considering teaching. It's a career with no future, given how little there is that CAN'T be learned by using a simple phone or tablet. Classroom teaching will go the way of travel agents, realtors and even banking, as soon as someone devises a better system than bitcoins.
I'm hoping that the local celebrities aren't taking the 'ice bucket challenge' out of ignorance and a need to feel trendy. The ALS industry admits to funding vivisection, but details as to the exact kinds of experiments are lacking. All I've seen is a 'trust us' position from them and an assurance that the vivisections adhere to "National Institutes of Health guidelines".
Those 'guidelines' amount to NOTHING. Literally ANYTHING can and is being done to animals in laboratories and the ONLY limits are the imagination of the vivisector and how deft he/she is at gaming the system out of some of the BILLIONS of dollars that their fellow vivisectionists lavish upon them.
This 'fest' is grotesque. Mercy For Animals undercover investigators have exposed the atrocities being committed against pigs, cows and chickens in EVERY animal -exploiting enterprise in which they've been successful at planting an agent.
I'm glad that you appreciated 'Ed Wood'; a movie which, like 'the Big Lebowski', I'm afraid I know every line of.
I'm wondering of there's such a thing as a 'gentlemen's agreement' about which films to avoid reviewing or publicizing. "The East" has gotten great reviews from non-advertising-dependent sources, but because of the subject matter, is it being ignored by reviewers who've been ordered to let it die?
