Just A Song Before I Go

Yep, the hiatus starts now – I may pop up from time to time with a video, but I’m not sure at this point. I’ll make a note of developments about this blog as warranted by events.

In the meantime, I’ve been looking for a way to work this in, and I think this is as good a time as any, describing what I’ve tried to be about here, though I know I’ve fallen short at times (I’d prefer the original by John Wesley Harding, but since I can’t, I’ll settle for this, which is a pretty good cover).

Sunday Stuff

Minnesota Dem Governor Mark Dayton might as well be talking about our beloved commonwealth (here)…

…and I dedicate this to David Frei and the Westminster Kennel Club for dropping Pedigree as a sponsor to the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, apparently because Westminster had a problem with Pedigree’s ads encouraging adoption of non-pedigreed dogs (here) – what, do you think your audience will object to non-pampered pooches? Are they all supposed to be Disney characters or something?
“Show me an ad with a dog with a smile; don’t try to shame me,” Mr. Frei told The A.P. The kennel club had expressed its concerns to Pedigree, he said, adding, “We told them that, and they ignored us.”

I hope an adopted dog finds Frei’s leg one day and mistakes it for a fire hydrant.
