A MODEST PROPOSAL ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


Shock waves rippled across 7th and Montana this morning as Dr. Livingstone, the local Goofball known for his taste in Safari Headgear of all kinds, began dispensing Doggie Biscuits and Free Advice at random. While he seemed to have trouble finding any takers for his Doggie Treats, even among the Canine Community, he found a willing audience for his advice in Screenwriter Nat. "I'm telling you," he began, looking Nat squarely in the eye, "I know exactly what we need to do about the Homeless Situation. Lock them all up in cages and host weekly Adoption Days, just like we do for stray dogs. It's a crying shame that we go to all these lengths to get people to adopt homeless dogs, when our streets are lined with homeless people!" He paused momentarily, long enough to offer Nat's dog, Einstein, a treat, before continuing. "I say, clean all the bums up, put them in cages and get them placed in good homes ...!" Nat humored the gentleman, which is more than I can say for Einstein. The Lovable Bichone Frise gave the Doggie Biscuit a critical sniff and sidled away as far as his leash would carry him ...!

Einstein is indeed a smart doggie. I'd steer clear of Dr. Livingstone, I presume!

Love the Modest Proposal reference! B.
