White students, however: tell racists they are racist! Kick their racist asses out of your party. I've never regretted unfriending a bigot.

Carolyn - A dog who is not permitted to have sex, is not enjoying her sexuality. Dogs are not people, and heat is an uncomfortable condition. I agree that, where feasible, it is healthy for a dog's - especially a female's - development to become fully mature before altering. Beyond that failure to spay/neuter is more about the owner than the pet.

Missive from Maine:
Sadly, the center-left independent who split the intelligent-person vote with the Democratic candidate last time is running again; the same dynamic which gave us LeRage in the first place could easily be recreated. On the bright side, the likely Democratic contender this time - Mike Michaud, now in Congress - is a much stronger candidate, so...one can hope for better.
