    Next step: Ban all dogs

    I was reading the letters to the editor section in this mornings Seattle Post Intelligencer when i noticed this letter

    I commend Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels for taking effective action to ensure public safety at Folklife by banning guns. In addition, I think dogs should be banned from Folklife and all other events at the Seattle Center. At Folklife this year, I noticed a great dane, a pitbull, and several other large breeds. I tried to understand why a pet owner would bring a large dog to a crowded event, but I could not understand how the dog or the spectators benefit from their presence.

    WOW
    When i first started reading it, I thought it was a joke and would shift to be pro gun but no haha

    That cracks me up. I have a Great Dane (see avitar), and the only danger he would pose would be to the chipmunks . . . like the one currently taunting him from the woodpile outside the back door.

    Kids love petting the "big doggie" when I walk them, and they love being outside. Seems to me everybody benefits!

    Maybe they should just ban idiots from the event.

    That's not fair. I wouldn't be allowed in!
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    Most of those idiots attending were stoned out of their minds. One of my technicians was about 50 yards away from the shooting when it happened. He said most of the crowd did not scramble for cover as was reported in the paper. Instead, they took drinks from their cups and continued "dancing." He heard several people say "eeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrr."

    How about if they ban fat chicks and guys with man breasts. I could not understand how the fat chicks and guys with man breasts or spectators benefit from their presence.

    Wow. Just wow.

    Ban the whole stupid event. How does anyone benefit from an event that most use as an excuse to get high? Oops, I guess that describes most so-called "fun" things we do, lol.

    I lived in the Seattle area for half a decade. The greater Puget Sound area is saturated with leftover-stoned outta thier common sense psudo coffee culture hippie larvie. They get in the way of all the real common sense folk and elect thier own-kind to pass these non-common sense laws.

    And you would probably forget why you were there in the first place.
