Very shortly, I'll have something to say about the whole pet food scandal..
No, I have something to say now: if this affected you in ANY way, make sure that you are registered to vote, make sure that you vote, and make sure that you make it clear to your elected officials that you care about this issue. The late Tip O'Neill used to say all politics is local, and what could be more local than wondering and worrying about your cat or your dog, because, at least at last report, somebody somewhere wanted to make a buck, and somebody else simply didn't test for a poisonous chemical. And now your dog is in the hospital with organ damage...or your cat simply isn't around.
Senator Dick Durbin has already begun to respond to the obvious holes in the system.
Our dogs and cats would thank us, if they could.
