There is where we can see how much of a misnomer "pet" is. The animals we live with are our family, as valued as members of our tribe as anyone else.

Thanks for letting me know, Cat. It makes me really happy to hear. I promise you that the line will be a very short one indeed.

Big banks are donating big bucks to Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney for her "panda pavilion" (prison) in Manhattan and to her re-election campaign in exchange for her help in Congress. Pandas should not be victims of pay-to-play politics.

As Mitch Green said, "Nobody knows the future."

It has undoubtedly been a very crazy life. Initially, I had all kinds of deals with film and TV people to do a memoir, but there didn't seem to be any large checks attached to the offers. You wrote a novel, man? That's interesting.

A few publishers have offered to put the book out, and I'll have my lawyer talk with them. I'm not optimistic. I hated my experiences with publishers, agents, and production companies after "Why I Fixed Fights," so self-publishing may be the choice. Thanks for suggesting it.

You're a lucky man, Regis. Khalessi is a beautiful child.

Colin told me that Benavidez is a man of few words. And while that's true, David is actually saying all the right things: he's still learning, he wants to unify, etc. And, as always, Colin knows the questions to ask.

Actually, My friend (and Mitch's) Casey Lauer has made some fantastic t-shirts with Mitch's picture on them.

No, I think you made a very good point. One that actually necessitates discussion.

Thanks, man. It's an uncomfortable fit; I worry that people will think I'm implying that Mitch Green is like a child (which he is not). But boxers' perceived best interests are often tied in with presenting themselves as incapable. It's very complex.

Thanks for reading the piece. I'm glad you enjoyed it. The parent/child analogy is an admittedly deeply flawed one, and it's not representative of the relationship I had with Mitch Green. But boxing, as a business, works toward infantalizing fighters, so managers seem paternal.

He's definitely one of those fighters you'll have wanted to see in person.

I got to see that one from close to ringside. Charlo is one seriously scary kid.

I'm sure he knows he can punch. But it's got to have been a gratifying win nonetheless.
