Give Them Shelter 

Regarding “Declawed” [Feb. 24, City Weekly], this is great news. The vivisectors (those who torture living animals) make it sound like it is wonderful to stick tubes down cats’ throats, like the kitties will really enjoy this (just like they enjoy being cut open for practice surgeries)!

It is a true travesty for an enlightened society that people’s beloved pets that may have gotten lost, or whose owners had been forced to relinquish them, are not guaranteed a wonderful new home or a humane death. These “shelters” instead turn them over to those who have the philosophy of, “Well, they are going to be killed, anyway; let’s torture them first.” And yes, I have personally worked in animal laboratories and know exactly what kinds of horrors go on there.

    Mr. Rasmuson, I enjoyed your column "Walk the Walk" [Dec. 18, City Weekly]. I found it very interesting.

    Amid all the hullabaloo over location of a new prison, aren't we forgetting something really important? How successful can our prison be in rehabilitating offenders if we make it more difficult and costly for their families to visit?

  • Becker Does It Better

    I always enjoy City Weekly's Hits & Misses column, and this week's version [Dec. 4, City Weekly], was no exception. Unfortunately, the Rocky III segment, while a nice complement to John Saltas' piece ["Mayor Maybe"], is wildly inaccurate.
