I was surprised -maybe horrified is a better word to read a headlined post
on Oped wondering why it was so wrong for Rep. Joe Wilson to call the President
a liar. I could give all kinds of reasons why he should not have- but the best
reason is that it was terribly unkind. And what about respect for the office?
Maybe next time somebody will decide to throw a shoe at the president. Would
this also be acceptable behaviour? In my opinion, it is boorish and ill-mannered.
I am disappointed that Congress didn't censure him for this. Maybe a nice
healthy fine would help him to keep his ill manners in check.

Had to get that out -though I am writing to tell everyone who doesn't know
about Tiger Lily and her cruel fate. She was a sweet innocent little kitten
with a beautiful name which befitted her. Two contemptible human beings
decided that the older one's former roommate needed to be taught a lesson.
What cowards to put this innocent little kitten into a 500-degree oven and
run out because they didn't want to hear the kitten's screams. What kind of
people are we raising?

On August 27th we were asked to write letters to Judge Margaret Clancy of
the Bronx Court as she would be hearing this case on Sept. 2, 2009. I don't
know why but the case was not heard then and has been moved to October 2.
IDA (In Defense of Animals) has asked us to write letters to the Court again.
Yes, I will re-submit my simple letter re Case# 02546 -2009:

Dear Judge Clancy,

I hope that you will get many letters in regards to this horrible senseless mean-
spirited actions of two girl criminals. Of course only the older 17- year old
Cheyenne Cherry is being tried, but in my opinion, they are both criminals. If
they can do such a horrific act to a poor little kitten, I am sure they can do it to
humans as well. But even if they would stop short of hurting humans, this
act is unspeakably cruel and deserves the harshest of punishments.

I hope that neither will be allowed to have a pet ever. Of course, you may be
getting letters asking for leniency or clemency as well. I cannot imagine why
anyone would do that if they just take the time to think about the terrible
suffering that Tiger Lily went through.

I believe both girls deserve jail time to think about their very cruel act. And
certainly Cheyenne Cherry, a repeat offender, needs time in jail to reflect on her
cruelty to a defenseless little kitten. Sadly, her younger accomplice should
have known better as well. As for Cherry, I understand that she has not shown
any remorse. What a heartless human being. She seems to be bereft of compassion.

We also recognize that they both need psychological counseling. To kill a kitten is
one thing- but to do it in such a horrible fashion is quite another.

If anyone wants to also write Judge Clancy before the October hearing - her address:
