Cat shrines of the Mississippi


Thousands of angry dog owners have written in to clerkmanifesto to complain about yesterday's post in which I subtly suggested that our attraction to dogs, while not necessarily individually reprehensible (I too have loved a good dog!), speaks to the human qualities of obedience, domination, hierarchy, and social control that has invariably doomed our species' experiment in the universe to tragedy.

I'm sorry I have offended so many of you. I will make you a deal:

If your dog doesn't bark, growl, or invade my personal space uninvited, I will...

Show you more cat shrines!

Everyone loves cats, don't they?

Well, one would certainly think so judging from all the shrines dedicated to them down along the bluffs and backwaters of the Mississippi River here in Saint Minneapolis!

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
