So, Monday I posted about a little letter to the editor from a recent transplant from that state out west. Apparently she has an issue with the deer carcasses she views by the side of the road as she travels from her high priced California Sub-Division that has been transported to Central Texas.
Now, personally, I have a problem with the deer carcasses on the side of the road also. It is not an aesthetics problem. My problem is that each and every one met their demise on the bumper of a vehicle. Given my experience with this problem, I realize that each one of them represents an insurance deductible of some measure. Mine happens to be $500/incident. Having hit 15 of those pests over the course of the last 19 years, I'm experienced in hunting deer (at 55-70MPH).
They're not "Bambi", they're pests!
In any case the transplant provided details about a great idea that had been perfected in California to have people on the State payroll drive around the county byways, picking up various deer carcasses and feeding them to the animals in the shelters who were "hoping" to find a new home.
Well, her post was from last Wednesday, our paper comes out weekly. Wednesday, March 1st, the first reply was posted.
Mr Weisinger and I could be one and the same person.
I loved the opening and closing paragraphs. The subtle nature of his verbal backhand is sublimely noteworthy. Someday I hope to write at this level.
Couldn't have said it better myself!
