Ministry discovery - "Salmons do not vote" - by Anonymous
The Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry in Finland have found out the fact that salmons do not vote. Jarper Pääkkönen told he secretly taped the salmon concersation he had in The Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, Finland. "Several sourced warned, that they (in the ministry) can distort/twist stories...". Does one has to be either a police and a lawyer to succeed in Finland as The Wiesenthal Center know?

An Unsettling Buffalo Dance - by Jim Macdonald
Traveling back onto a familiar trail unsure of why I was there, I saw the familiar beauty of the Gardiner Basin north of Yellowstone National Park.

A mouse is not a man—or a tool - by Kathy Guillermo

Every caring person wants to end the need for euthanasia of homeless dogs and cats.
