Normally, in my line of work, I'm cranking out stuff all the time, whether it's about dog-and-baby classes or energy-efficient windows. Hey, I've got a lot of different clients. (Thank God...)
But this week while all this, uh, merriment was going on in various quarters, I wrote two articles as different as night and day, and I'm insanely proud of them both.
#1, definitely coming from my nicer side, is a piece I did for the Rex Foundation's site about Project Avary, which is one of the groups Rex supports. I've always kinda been a fan so I was tickled to get a chance to work on this one. Check it out because I'm proud of it, or check it out because they're wonderful folks, but check it out! (The Avarys have a topic in the Forums under Dead-Related Charities also.)
#2, coming from my fire-breathing side, is my latest pets column on KGO's web site, which is, in essence, a plea for the judge in the Vick case to stop listening to the idiots who say there's nothing to do with Vick's victims but kill them, and to instead require Vick to fund their lifelong loving care as part of his sentence. I'm very grateful for my radio station boss who a) loves dogs as much as I do and indeed adopted one of my fosters and b)lets me write outspoken columns on stuff where it matters. So, you want fire-breathing, read here.
Yup, the two sides of marye's writing career in this crazy week....
