Still Reeling. Kathy Riordan knew...

and she did nothing.

From her own lips, Riordan told me, last fall, that on the August 16, 2009
night/morning of the burglary and theft of my dogs, including Maeve,
she was called repeatedly between 1 and 3 AM, prior to the "break-in"
by ringleader, Kris Kelly and Barks of Love. Kelly demanded money
(what else?) for "boarding" for the dogs they were about to steal.

Riordan says that , not knowing what to do (really?) she called a
"city official" (at 2:00 a.m.?) who told her that she had no obligation to call "the
authorities." Dogs terrorized and stolen, a house burglarized and a life destroyed.
Someone knew it was happening AS IT HAPPENED. And she did nothing.

Beware and be informed.

I've been devastated by this news for months. Spineless. I wonder what
she'd do for her own way-over-the-limit cats.

Convinced that "government" has no place in animal rescue or care, I
have to take leave from this blog for an extended period,. for my own
sanity---whatever that is. Fight on, but when in doubt...get off of
your ass and your computer and walk like an Egyptian---in the streets.

a break from the madness

It's always amazing (slow learner) to me how much beating my head against the brick walls of ignorance, treachery, ass-covering and bureaucracy can take out of you.  I need to step away from these people for awhile. They are toxic and I have allowed them to drain me. The previous post kind of says it all.

If I write in the near future it will likely be at http://jeffdelarosa.blogspot.com or on paper.

It is not likely that the original subject of this blog--the Board-- will net any publishable or meaningful results anytime soon. I stand by my earlier statement that the only solution for these poor animals is to take them out of the City's hands entirely. There is no place for government in animal welfare or rescue. At least not this government where salaries and doublespeak matter more than the lives of sentient beings.

Be well. Be kind to each other.
