LeLo, you get credit for this--your eloquent laying out of the problem and the way that it is getting picked up by many other news sources even as we speak, not to mention your readers and the way they spread the word... you rock, girl. Hooray!

Thumbs up to you, LeLo.

WOW, congratulations on getting that handled, so well and so quickly!!!! I'm sorry I missed it, but how awesome!!!

Thank you for the hedgie baby article, too. So sad, yet so precious. I still mourn Sonic, my African pygmy hedgehog. Didn't know she wouldn't do well in a NYC winter...

Could you arrange the same kind of thing for Bush and The White House???

Please!

I'm very proud of you, too! I'm so glad you made that post. We took care of business in, what? Twelve hours? That's awesome!

Wow. Guess my "within a week guess" was generous.

Hi. Came over here from RSG.

First, let me say hooray! Kudos to all of you for speaking out about this.

Second, let me say you are incredibly lucky to see Ira Glass for only $28, any seat! I have tickets for when he is here in Houston, but mine are the cheap seats, which were almost $30 each. They are in the top level of the hall (a performing arts venue) in the LAST ROW. Ugh.
