Feline Liberation Front

Posted by glasscastle on 2nd February 2006

We have been talking with our cats quite a bit lately,
whether from lack of a patient alternative or a newfound appreciation
of non-human intelligence we know not. Today we tried to explain Groundhog
Day – an entire national holiday dedicated to a rodent – and they got
rather upset.

We had to explain that there was no "Kitty Day".
Then we had to explain that the process for getting a national
holiday declared was long and arduous – longer than the lifespan of
the average

"Besides," we told them, "the cards are stacked
against you. This President is a dog person."

It was when we mentioned that we had just entered
the "Year of the Dog" that they formed the Feline Liberation Front
and started serious training…..

BOSTON (Reuters) – An 18-year-old man opened fire in a Massachusetts’
gay bar and attacked patrons with a hatchet, wounding three people, police
said on Thursday.

The attack at Puzzles Lounge in New Bedford, a city about 58 miles south
of Boston, took place around midnight on Wednesday and was being treated
as an apparent hate crime.

Police said the man entered the bar, ordered a drink and asked the bartender
if he was in a gay bar. When told that it was, he reached into his coat
and pulled out a hatchet and attacked the man next to him.

As patrons attempted to restrain him, he drew a gun and fired several shots,
wounding two people, police said.Two of the wounded were airlifted to a
Boston hospital.

The gunman fled. Police later identified him as Jacob Robida, an 18-year-old
described as extremely violent.
