Leading Off (11/18/10): Fun With Adjectives Edition

1. After reading this story and before watching the video, I began ranting about how people need to stop threatening lawsuits to the police department for doing its job. If you lead cops on a seven-mile chase, then I think you can expect to be apprehended once you stop. So I was having a hard time being sympathetic. Then I watched the video. Excessive may just be the appropriate adjective to describe the force used to get the man off his motorcycle.

2. I love animals. Whether it be a grasshopper (I had one as a pet. His name was brownie.) or a pot-bellied pig (Again, had one as a pet. She slept in my bed and was litter-box trained.), I love them all. But I have a particular affinity to the Spitz family dogs. So when I hear a story about a sweet, blue-eyed, white Husky being deemed dangerous because she chased a duck into a pond and because her owners don’t hit deadlines, it really bothers me. I say we start a Save Sasha campaign and help her get rid of that pesky dangerous adjective.

3 Sean Fitzgerald waited three days to get the winning shot of two coyotes howling at him while snow fell in Dallas. Several adjectives to describe his resulting photo: breathtaking, gorgeous, beauteous, and cute (look at those little faces!).
