Those that have died or lost their homes is very sad, but that will not change. Te issue of the pets is not trivializing the death and destruction. These animals have a need for food and sustenance, and the fact that there are this who want to help does not diminish the tragedy.
The sarcasm, the vitriol, the attacks on this list are getting to the point of being overly ridiculous! Can we get back to being civilized. It is little wonder that the anti's take everything those advocates of the nuclear option with such disdain. One only needs to read the posts on is list from the certain few. Let's get back to basics and stop the name-calling. That should cheve ceased when you all left elementary school.
