I received this email and wanted to share it with you.   Jasmine In 2003, police in Warwickshire, England, opened a garden shed and found a whimpering, cowering dog.

Marlowe Black is my outrage, my anguish, but wasn't meant to be. I have read that a writer's protagonists and, too, his antagonists, are all facets of the writer's personality.

Such a pretty girl and I did not put up her photograph. It was deliberate. The good-looking dead grab more newsprint and TV space because we need a relief from eyesores of calamities and tragedies even if they come in the form of victims. Especially if they are victims. Our sorrow can get...
