Wry Commentary

Congress is insisting that disaster plans include provisions for safety of pets.  The congresspeople were distressed by the heart wrenching sight of children leaving their pets behind to perish. Their action brought to mind a scene from an old movie.

A ship's officer loads the life boat with every person possible, but has to leave some people adrift.  An abandoned passenger pleads, "You're leaving us adrift, but you're taking the dog? Why?"

"Because," says the officer, played by Tyrone Power, "we can't eat you."

Two guys are hiking in the woods. They are suddenly confronted by a huge grizzly bear.

"What do we do?" says one.

"Run" says the other.

"You're crazy... you can't outrun a bear."

"I don't have to outrun the bear... I only have to outrun YOU."
