A Living Thing

Published in AM NEW YORK, January 6, 2005:

Re "Crash Highlights Carriage Risks": Thank you so much, AM NEW YORK, for being the only daily to describe this poor, intelligent animal's terrible death in compassionate terms. Elsewhere, he was a 'carcass,' an 'it,' an afterthought to the coverage of this sad incident. By describing the problems of taking a '...big, shy animal onto the frenetic city streets,' you vividly remind us that animal protection and human decency - two notions that ennoble and nurture each other - are worthy of media acknowledgement.
