Hello, "Crazy Butt"...

Call me crazy, but I did not expect to see this headline this morning on my internet news:

"Martha Stewart's Dog Killed in Explosion"

Now, I'm not trying to be insensitive about the loss of a pet - far be it. I know how I'd feel if Shelby or Izzie "bit the bullet" in any shape, form or fashion.

But I guess I've just become so used to headlines like "Trillion Dollar Deficit", "Major Auto Makers Request More Bailout Money", "Obama Overturns Bush Directives", "Unemployment Sores as Recession Deepens" (I guess that's really supposed to be "Soars" but if you're unemployed, both work...) or "Pastor Shot During Services" that a blurb on Martha Stewart's dog made me snort a bit.

I guess it's easy to forget there are other things out there.

Oh, and my sincerest condolences to Martha on her pet, Genghis.

I guess it would be insensitive to say he went out with a bang.

Yeah, it would be.

I'm sure Martha and her dog always had a blast together.
