Yesterday, I posted an entry about an English Mastiff which attacked and maimed a 9 year old boy last weekend during, ironically, a fund-raiser for animals on our fair peninsula.
Hey, a few hundred million here, a few voters there: seems like the Republican party and the Bush administration have the same disdain for basic accounting principles as some of their fat-cat CEO buddies.
For the second time in less than a month, an irresponsible dog owner on our little peninsula has harmed an innocent victim – this time, a 9 year old boy, the same age as my oldest grandchild.
And the chicken-hearted officials who are responsible for our health and safety have once again, punted on their responsibilities.
In one of a number of misstatements during last night’s debate, Cheney told viewers to “get the truth” about Kerry’s voting record by visiting factcheck.com

I saw two of my Master Gardener friends at the Barnstable Harvest Fair yesterday, one of whom, Inez Narbis, was my teacher a couple of years ago.
Inez is an amazing woman: partially paralyzed in a horseback riding accident years ago, she nonetheless maintains a demonstration garden at the Fairgrounds, while keeping up with her full-time job and other County Extension volunteer work.
I see Inez maybe 3-4 times a year at various events, and she’s always kind enough to give me a big hello.
Borrowing the main metaphor from the Presidential election campaign, I’ve talked before about my pre- and post-emptive battle with crickets.
Like the war in Iraq, I am far from “Mission Accomplished”.
As in finding yesterday that I needed yet another line of defense.
For the first time since the Democratic primaries, I’m starting to believe that John Kerry was the right man for the job.
Almost every news outlet, including Fox, judged him the winner in last night’s Presidential debate. The only waffler I’ve found so far is Sumner Redstone’s (“the re-election of President Bush would be best for Viacom’s interests”) CBS.
And good for the networks for using split screens during the broadcast, thus ignoring the rules of the discredited Commission on Presidential Debates.
Okay, it’s the day of the first Presidential debate, and one hopes that by 10 o’clock tonight, the much-coveted Undecideds (estimated at 20%) will close Bush’s current 6% lead over Kerry.
That being said, I’m taking a few minutes to thank the folks at Midas Muffler in Falmouth, who once again, have kept my 214,000+ mile Subaru on the road without soaking me for unnecessary repairs.
Maybe it’s as a result of seeing “Poltergeist”, but I believe that houses can have good, bad or even evil “vibes”.
And the one next to me, an otherwise normal-looking full Cape, has GOT to have a portal to Hell in one of its closets.
