One Lucky Dog
A couple of stories worth noting from the Chicago Tribune this morning: My daughter-in-law sent me this story about Lucky, the Springer Spaniel, who was dragged nearly a mile behind the car of a 92-year-old woman before being rescued. Amazingly, he survived without any broken bones. Regular readers know I love Springers, and Jeff and Natalie have one themselves. Natalie said Lucky looked a lot like their puppy, Monte. I guess my biggest question about this story is: what the devil is a 92-two-year-old doing driving?
Another story that caught my eye was the news that Evan Bayh is not going to make a race for the Democratic presidential nomination largely due to the hoopla surrounding Obama. Don’t get me wrong, I’m excited that we have a potential candidate that can generate this buzz, but I’m dismayed to see good candidates like Bayh take themselves out so early. Obama has not been proven and we must not pick a person too soon.
