Animal welfare isn't a left/right issue. It's about finding our humanity in seeing the life, worth, and preciousness in the other beings who share this planet with us. Good for you, Stormy--and Tammy.

Lulu, my voice is a lot squeakier than yours. Pay no mind. Your voice has the matchless authority of someone who knows what she's talking about. Letters like this go with the territory, though sometimes I want to say, "Thanks. And what do you do for a living?"

Warmest congrats to my boyhood pal Ben Taylor, winner of LA Times Christopher Isherwood Prize for Autobiographical Prose for “The Hue and Cry at Our House: A Year Remembered.” (The young me rates a short paragraph) Ben is a great talent and friend.

It would be good to pardon Jack Johnson (albeit too late to do much for him). But the injustice done to hime is a well-known story in American history. Shouldn't need a call from a Hollywood star to learn about it. I hope he would have taken a call from James Earl Jones, too.

Our daughters have no interest in being journalists. But if they ever do, I'll tell them to be a "third-rate journalist" like (& etc.)

I don't like phrases like "fiendishly clever" or "mischievous" in this story. Seems to me that intelligent beings figured out how to make a break for their freedom:

You have to wonder (or maybe the answer is obvious) why never reports on the many Russian journalists who die under questionable circumstances. But I also wonder how any US or UK journalist can work for RT?
