Doesn't it feel wrong that there is a $100,000 reward for cutting a fiber optic cable, a $40,000 reward for finding the shooter of a bird that didn't even die, and only a $26,000 reward for apprehending the murderer of an 8 year old girl? Interesting priorities that our society is developing.

Yes, interesting.

Visit the animal shelters in Dublin, they are some of the nicest buildings you'll ever see. Spacious, bright, and clean. Artwork and such.

Then go to a homeless shelter or something and look at the difference. Odd isn't it.

Yes, I agree that it is ridiculous to offer so much more for info on the Condor issue vs. the 8 year old girl who was murdered. What's up with that?

Thanks for the info on the Sund Foundation. My check is in the mail. I did some quick research on the Carol Sund Foundation and they have done good work over many years. I tried contributing online but their paypal link wasn't working. The following information is from the Contra Costa Times:

Cards and condolences to Sandra Cantu's family may be sent to the Tracy Police Department, 1000 Civic Center Drive, Tracy, CA, 95376.

Donations can be sent to the Carole Sund/Carrington Memorial Reward Foundation, 301 Downey Ave., Modesto, CA, 95354, attn. Sandra Cantu.

The Condor is a magnificent bird. The lives of animals are = to the lives of all other living beings.

Are you kidding me? I love my animals but lose respect for PETA and groups like this when the rights of animals become elevated above the rights of children. I honestly am dumbstruck and cannot believe this story. Are we supposed to be touched by this? Are we supposed to feel compelled to give? Hell no. These groups lose credence with me when they attempt to solicit funds to save a bird over a child. And those of you on that side, please don't respond, because I won't be back here.

Jill, why are you so full of hate?
