Gretchen: Speaking of "moral indignation and self-righteousness" could you PLEASE knockRead Morei t off with the "hater" bs? It is getting old and does nothing to enhance any reasonable debate. Moving on....

Even though I have had dogs almost all my life, when we had to euthanize our last, I decided dogsRead Morear e not only too much work, too much responsibility, they are also very expensive. I would prefer to help my children and grandchildren when possible. However, when I did have a dog, I was always respectful of the fact that many people, including myself, have a reasonable fear of things that bite. If someone, was invited as a guest or on business to my home, I always put our VERY well-behaved dog(s) in another room until I was sure the person was comfortable around dogs. And it happened more than once that someone would admit they really would prefer the dog was secured while he/she was working/visiting. And I appreciated that person's honesty. The last thing I want is for a visitor to feel anxious in my home.

Finally, I have tolerance for people who own dogs. I do not have much tolerance for people whoRead Moreprov e by their behavior that their dogs should have the same rights and liberties as humans. There is a growing number of dog owners who do believe as paul suggested. Some would even sacrifice their first born to save their dog. Anyhoo, I hope the Attleboro animal shelter is spending at least enough time modifying the owners behavior as they are the dogs behavior.

David, Thank you for your timely letter. We in the US need to know that internationally FireRead MoreSafet y Codes are more stringent and that means fewer fires and less loss of life. We're so used to thinking that US = Number 1, but in truth, we need to upgrade our fire safety codes and make fire safety more of an ongoing priority. Heroes are great but let's not make any more of them by preventing fires at every turn. http://www.fireengineering.com/articles/2008/02/international-fire-safety-legislation-an-overview.html

I can't comment as regards your technical e-mail problem. I do remember a couple of elderlyRead Moregentle man speaking together downtown one day long ago. One said, "The only thing that changes in Attleboro are the automobiles."

Thanks for posting this. My nephew actually was one of the kids that did not fit into the PopRead MoreWarner Matrix as he was a big kid. He later played in High School but was at a decided disadvantage as he had never played organized Football before. I also witnessed the unhealthy means of trying to lose weight to either be able to play at a specific level or to be able to play at all! Kids would put on trash bags, starve themselves and go in the attic and do jumping jacks until they were ready to pass out. I am all for kids eating and being healthier but going about it by these means cannot be good either.

Thanks rs. That is a prime example of why we need to make this change.

when I saw the words "expose yourself" I was startled. That term has unsavory legalRead Moreconno tations which may undercut your message or turn people off.
