The front page of today's Wall Street Journal punched me in the face. It read "Fat Pets: A Growing Problem".
America is in a funk to be sure.
Unemployment is way too high. Government and household budgets are a mess. Education quality is diminishing. And, now, Rover is facing a swollen heart and gout.
Still, if an emerging "crisis" is that our pets and their owners- eat too much, things can't really be that bad; especially on a planet where more than 1.5 billion people went to bed hungry last night and will so again this evening.
