A different look at World War II

My uncle was a fighter pilot in WWII, and I've read a good bit about the war over the years.

Surely, there are emergency vets in your area? If it was my dog, I wouldn't wait on this. It could be a fast-moving infection of some sort.

Parents aren't supposed to bury their children. Good thoughts and prayers go out to the Biden family. I know they will lean upon one another to get through this tough year.

But I keep thinking Nick Zito is going to do it again. Hope I'm seriously wrong.

I dunno, a Thanksgiving Dodo for the holiday feast? Just doesn't have the same festive ring to it. :)
