The Managerial State’s Media and Medical Lapdogs

A headline on the Huffington Post blared: "Comfort Dogs Sent To Newtown From Chicago Area To Help Community After Sandy Hook Shooting." CNN’s top dog Anderson Cooper followed – or led the pack; who cares? – with a similar segment about insourcing dogs to comfort the afflicted community of Newtown, Conn.
One day after the massacre of 20 children and seven adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School, "a group of golden retrievers from the Chicago area made a cross-country journey to … Newtown."
Woof, woof, or barf, barf?
Are there no companion dogs in Newtown, Conn.? Must expert dogs be brought in to properly minister to the mourners? Apparently so. Even the neighborhood dog is now unqualified for the big time.
