LET'S TALK ABOUT DOGS INSTEAD OF CANDIDATES
By Robert L. Huffstutter
I have always been fond of dogs and cats. To be brief, I have always loved and respected most all animals.
Likewise, most of my friends love and respect animals, so right off, we share this common bond. Whenever we get together for coffee and find the weather too boring to discuss, we discuss politics and religion, two subjects guaranteed to liven aged spirits and oil the joints of ancient bones.
At this point in time, when political comments can be so outspoken and intense that friendships can be ruined by facial expressions suggesting approval or disapproval of one or the other candidate, a few of us have vowed to talk about old dogs or our grandchildren in order to preserve the Republic.
