wanted: one hot date

the indianapolis symphony orchestra is performing carmina burana this weekend. anyone interested in accompanying me? (more info).


i like david sedaris.


i can't believe there is actually legistlation which will eventually withold federal funding from states which do not offer means to evacuate pets from natural disaster areas. sure, i'd be sad if euclid got caught in a fire or a flood or something, but isn't that my fault for not evacuating myself and/or my possessions from impending doom?

seriously... how many PEOPLE died in new orleans? i think our first priority should be perfecting our human evacuation systems. and, here's a though, stop overpopulating areas with such significant environmental hazards.


my tummy hurts.

I agree we need to perfect the human evacuation system.

However, the legislation makes sense. A large number of deaths were the result of people not being allowed to take their pets on the buses or helicopters because of a "perceived health risk". People refused to leave without their pets so they ended up dying. How hard would it have been to just let the animals on the bus?! At that point in time I think the risks were worth taking. A little doggie-doo certainly wasn't going to kill the same amount of people that died because they loved their pets.

And while it seems crazy to not get the hell out, I think it truly shows the special bond between humans and animals. I would have had a very hard time leaving my pets behind...

i would have a hard time too, but i wouldn't risk my life for it. of course, i'd evacuate as soon as possible too. i'm a total pussy.

from what i understand/remember, there weren't enough busses. taking up space with pets when humans need a seat is unacceptable to me. also, doggy doo is one thing, but i'd be very wary of getting on a bus--already overcrowded with people--that had a bunch of dogs and cats on it. to me, it seems the biggest health risk would be them wigging out on each other and anyone who got between them.
