Paramedics equipped with oxygen masks for… pets?
From the OC Register,

Every fire engine and truck operated by the Orange County Fire Authority will now carry oxygen masks for household pets – thanks to a donation from an Anaheim pet owner whose rescued dog was displaced in a wildfire.

Is this merely a sign of compassion in our society, where we acknowledge the soulish qualities of higher mammals? Or does it reflect a potentially twisted view which places certain species of the animal kingdom on a higher plane than warranted? Or… is this merely another indicator of a society so immersed in peace and prosperity, that we are able to allocate resources to such an end?


Church Food Bank donations – picked up by limo?
A tad much to expect your food donations for an elderly couple will be picked up by their limo? From the article,

An email sent out to members of the Crystal Cathedral congregation requesting meals for founder Robert H. Schuller’s wife Arvella, who is ill with pneumonia, is creating mixed feelings of sadness and outrage among members.

According to longtime member Jim McDonald, an email was sent out by administrators to Bible study groups as well as church elders, asking that meals for the reverend’s wife be dropped off at the cathedral’s Tower of Hope where the Schullers’ limo drivers will be waiting to pick them up at the designated time.



Ahhh, Disneyland – the happiest place on Earth… even for coyotes
Seriously, folks, you’ve got to watch out for these critters just about all over the country or, even in pump tunnels.

A coyote wandered onto the grounds of the Disneyland Hotel last month and somehow got into a pump room in the tunnels beneath the hotel.

Disneyland Resort security personnel contacted Orange County Animal Care at 10:13 a.m. on Oct. 10 to see if they could come out and help.

They may not always get the roadrunner, but they get just about everything else.

I suppose Disney Security had to call Animal Care because they were too busy surrounding 10 year-old girls and elderly ladies in motorized wheelchairs. What? Didn’t hear about that one?
