Re: When you condone the torture-murder of journalists

This has been a watershed moment for me. I've gone from being "I must see all sides of the opinion" to rock-solidly horrified and disgusted at this regime. And I mean THIS regime. God help us all. I can only hope there are many more like you who have had enough. Unfortunately, there will ...

Re: My nicely-nourished horse meets my severely under-nourished horse (vid).

Funny! I thought it was interesting and very cute that, in spite of appearing as only bones, Finn recognized it as a horse and said "Hi" by doing the nose-breathing greeting horses do with each other.
