Waitaminit - what the heck is a "leased cat"? Are the payments on the animal lower than for a conventional pet loan? Is the sales tax divided equally between the monthly lease payments, instead of paid in full at the time of purchase? Do you have the option of trading old kitty in for new kitty at the end of the lease? Inquiring minds want to know.

Issuing a threat of deadly force against people & their pets who have never done anything to you. On the off chance your cat might get scared. Ye gods.

Stay classy, Harvey.

Hi Maureen

Yours is the first letter on this topic that doesn't include some self-righteous axe-grinding, and I thank you for that. While I haven't been here 38 years, it's been more than a decade for me, with at least one dog at my side the entire time. My tenure has furnished an observation quite the opposite yours. As I've mentioned here in the past, for every responsible owner in Steamboat, there are (in my experience) a dozen morons.

Nice to see you citing Ted Cruz. I don't disagree with him:

The United States must leverage its economic and financial clout to cut off their sources of funding, including by pressuring governments like Saudi Arabia to prevent payments to these terrorist groups and the radical Islamic clerics who enable them. But above all, the United States must be willing to wield whatever military might is necessary to utterly destroy ISIS and a resurgent al Qaeda.

"The circumstances of the attack raise yet more questions about the French government’s response to the threat of terrorism. One of the attackers reportedly was a convicted terrorist being monitored with an electronic tag while living with his parents. He was allowed out unsupervised between 8.30 a.m. and 12.30 p.m. The mass he attacked began at 9 a.m."

Unfreakingbelievable. We're treating these animals like they're Martha Stewart.

Hollande: Deadly church attack in France carried out in name of ISIS

84 year old priest beheaded in his own church during morning mass. I'm sure he had it coming. Western meddling, and all that. I won't mention the religious affiliation of the perpetrators. That would be bigoted.

Yemen, Bahrain, Syria... same $hi+, different day. 732 is 1483 is 1786 is 2016. I'm not sure what you're proposing with your "non religious crusade." Unlike Preezy & Hill, I'm not reluctant to condemn Islamic terrorists for Islamic aggression and don't lay their atrocities at our doorstep. Regarding Trump, he talks out of both sides of his mouth 100% of the time & changes his policy positions along with his socks. I have no idea where he stands on anything nor what he'd do if given the chance.
