Triad Today Commentaries

September 19, 2023:
“Pets Continue to Suffer from Vet Shortage”

An injured dog receiving veterinary care“On a recent Sunday morning our dog Albert was clearly in distress. We took him to a Greensboro 24-hour emergency vet clinic. But we were told there was no one on staff who could perform surgery. We were given a list of other emergency vets to call, but each were either closed or had no surgeon available. Albert was not long for this world when I found Dr. Joseph Kinnarney of Reidsville Veterinary Hospital.”

“Meredith Baxter to Speak in Greensboro to Raise Funds for Breast Cancer Research”

Meredith Baxter“‘TV Mom’ Meredith Baxter twice fought cancer, but today at the age of 76, she is cancer-free. She is just about the nicest person I’ve ever met, and despite her celebrity, she remains unpretentious. And she’s coming next month to Greensboro to promote early breast cancer testing.”

“Service Dogs vs. Support Animals”

“We have three dogs, and we cater to their every whim. In other words, we ‘service’ our pets. In return, they provide us with ‘emotional support’. Which brings up the difference between service and support when it comes to animals, and why Publix grocery stores are caught in the middle of a controversy over the two designations.”

“Above All, Racists Are Cowards”

“On August 1st, a national monument was erected to honor Emmitt Till, who was lynched in 1955. At that ceremony, there was hope among some of us stupidly naïve Americans that we might see an end to violent racism in our lifetime. Sadly, not only are race relations still bad, they are in some ways, even worse than in 1955.”
