Why me, Lord?

It’s a question you don’t have to be human to ask yourself:

Eastwood the Lab

Abandoned by the side of a Michigan road in December, “Eastwood” here suffers from a leg deformity which may or may not require surgery somewhere down the line at a cost of $4000 or so. Which may explain this:

The BISSELL Pet Foundation hosted an annual adoption event “Empty the Shelters” on Saturday, volunteering to cover the adoption fees for all pet owners… In total, the Little Traverse Bay Humane Society found homes for 49 animals last week alone, a new record.

Forty-nine out of, um, fifty. Guess who was left?

Yep. Poor fellow. The shelter’s communication specialist reported the story to Facebook, and what the local folks couldn’t bring themselves to do, a family in Detroit will. What’s more, this comes off as an actual useful purpose for Facebook, something no one was expecting.

    Yeah, you gotta have a love/hate attitude towards FB. It can be a great force for good. On the other hand:
    1. Who the heck ARE all those people who want to be my friend?
    2. How sweet! 50 people are wishing me a happy birthday. Oh crap, now they all expect me to wish it for THEM. And no excuses, due to the relentless birthday reminders.
    3. However, as an investor, you should look into it. The symbol is FB.

    I know what you mean. All my FB friends are people I know face-to-face, so I won’t have that “who are these people?” issue like I did with Skype (and, waaay back in the day, Yahoo Messenger).

    …and I’m glad to see the little guy found a home.
