I Should Not Read Any of the News out of Zanesville

It just upsets me. I’m sure everyone has now heard about Terry Thompson killing himself after releasing dozens of wild animals. All except six were later killed. I’m not faulting the individuals for responding this way, but given the state’s laws about exotic pets, they should have been more prepared to deal with this. Please change the laws. And in the meantime, please provide training and equipment to local authorities so they can handle things like this differently in the future.

A friend came to visit and she wanted to see the Wall Street protesters so we took a walk downtown. It was a chilly night which got even chillier.
