Bad News and Good News

You may have heard the chilling story that China has massacred 50,000 dogs in response to a rabies outbreak. PETA says that even dogs that were immunized against rabies were killed. One story said that PETA is calling for a boycott of Chinese goods but their website is encouraging Americans to complain to China's Ambassador Zhou Wenzhong in Washington: 202-328-2574 (phone) and 202-328-2582 (fax).

ModestNeeds.Org - Small Change. A World Of Difference. On the other hand, I read a sweet story at Modest Needs about a woman who needed a bed for her son who was recovering from surgery. It turned out that she and her three children had no beds, almost no furniture at all. Donors responded by buying her four beds and a dining room set.
