An Uncommon Mass of People

AHM is upset she can't get up to Washington DC to see this President Reagan person one last time. According to her we're close enough, but the uniform people wouldn't let the rest of the pack inside the Capitol--like we're not Americans or something.

Glenn Reynolds--and what is it with that "Puppy Blender" crap?--says "a pack not a herd" lots of times. AHM always reads that stuff to me 'cause I am (naturally) leader of the pack around here. Aside from her, of course. (She made me write that. --H)

For the record, a pack is a bunch of things, among them 1) "a group of…dogs or wolves, that run and hunt together," and 2) "an organized troop having common interests." A herd, on the other paw, is "the multitude of common people regarded as a mass." Got that?

Anyway, AHM is back at the computer again, reading aloud and feeding us treats. (We've got an awful lot of treats this week for some reason. Wish I knew what we did so we could keep doing it. Maybe there's something to this sitting-on-laps business after all.) Then she read this story and started doing that human growling thing she does when she's really pissed off.

"Dan Rather and Tom Brokaw work for different networks but agree one thing — coverage of Ronald Reagan's death has been excessive, they say.

"Even though everybody is respectful and wants to pay homage to the president, life does go on," Rather told the Philadelphia Inquirer

"Once the herd starts moving in one direction, it's very hard to turn it, even slightly," Rather said. "Nationally, the herd has grown tremendously."

Someone change his kitty litter pan, okay? I haven't heard catty spitting like that since I treed that uppity fe-lying who invaded my territory.

If those TV people disliked this President Reagan guy so much, he must have been a real great Alpha Human Male. Even after he's dead Reagan can still put his mark over theirs.
