Micrbro, I'm not good at blogs (a number of my friends have them, but I always forget to check them and add to them)...but you might want to include this video. A friend just sent it, and it relates to our discussions recently! Perhaps it's Hillary, Barrak and John reincarnated? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RuuesBhOR9g
This is a video of a homeless man in Santa Barbara and his pets. They work State Street every week for donations. The animals are pretty well fed and seem to be happy. They are a family. The man who owns them rigged a harness up for his cat so she wouldn't have to walk so much (like the dog and himself). At some juncture the rat came along, and since no one wanted to eat anyone else, the rat started riding with the cat and often, on the cat. The dog will stand all day and let you talk to him and admire him for a few chin scratches. The mayor of Santa Barbara filmed this clip and sent it out as a Christmas card.
