what an excellent day for a ...dog bite?
What ever happened to Linda Blair? When she was posessed I could at least have a rational conversation with her. Nowadays it's not so easy.
A week ago, 12 year old Nicholas Faibish of San Francisco was mauled to death by his pet pit bull. Guess who came to his rescue. The pit bull's, that is.
Our poster child for the demonically posessed is now official protector of vicious canines.
Come to think of it, she's probably better prepared for the job than most of us.
The Center for Disease Control in Atlanta reports that nearly 5 million people in the US are bitten by dogs annually. Of those, 800,000 seek medical treatment. Pit bulls and rottweilers lead the stats as best biters. Some cities, like Denver, have outlawed ownership of risky breeds to cut down on attacks.
Linda, supposedly free of any lasting effects of her childhood acquaintance with Captain Howdy, says they're cuddly and snuggly. She is spending literally millions to convince others that this is so. Just check out her web site. Pitiful. (sorry)
I swear I liked her better when I could understand what she was up to.
