FIRST THEY CAME FOR THE POOR LITTLE DROOPY EARED PUPPIES....:

JUDI'S JOB WITH PUP-KILLER FIRM (DAN MANGAN, April 2, 2007, NY Post)

Judith Giuliani once demonstrated surgical products for a controversial medical-supply company that used dogs - which were later killed - in operations whose only purpose was to sell equipment to doctors, The Post has learned.

"It was a horribly cruel, outrageous program," Friends of Animals President Priscilla Feral said about the demonstrations of medical staplers on dogs conducted by U.S. Surgical Corp. employees during Giuliani's tenure there in the late 1970s.

Feral said U.S. Surgical's demonstrations on hundreds of dogs each year through the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s were done to boost sales, not for medical re search or testing.

The dogs were "either put to death following the sales demonstrations because they can't re cover from them, or they die during them," Feral said.


The Giulianis support doing the same with humans--why not to critters?

Thus flaileth the Maverick.

Meanwhile, the story did at least remind me of this great terrace song from Old Trafford, sung in honor of ManUtd's Korean winger, Park Ji-Sung, to the tune of "Lord of the Dance":

Park, Park, wherever you may be,
You eat dogs in your home country,
It could be worse, you could be Scouse,
Eating rats in your council house.

The woman's name is feral?

She had to have changed it, right?

Good call Jim. If her name was not changed, then it is just one more of God's little jokes.

Kinda like the man who invented VISA. His last name is "Hock".

These things are not accidents.

We heard the one about the Pennsylvania Dutchman, Gottlieb Fick, who petitioned to court to change his name to Johann Fick.

Seriously, El Caudillo's seling point is that he knows how to deal with critters.
