    Philip Kives was he tireless TV pitchman whose commercials implored viewers to “wait, there’s more!” while selling everything from vegetable slicers to hit music compilations on vinyl.

    Dogs have owners; cats have staff.

    Not lazy. Yesterday someone asked where was Ginger; today she’s there. Subtle.

    Though generally true, not “ALWAYS”; indeed, “The Call of the Wild” was written in response to the negative portrayal of a dog in an earlier short story, “Bâtard.” The story is a study of an animal’s reaction to its treatment by man. There were complaints of the way the dog’s behavior was described and London followed up on the same theme with The Call of the Wild.

    “‘Bâtard’ is a short story by Jack London, first published in 1902 under the title ‘Diable — A Dog’ in The Cosmopolitan before being renamed to “Bâtard” in 1904. The story follows Black Leclère and Bâtard, two ‘devils,’ one in a man and the other in a wolfdog. Their intense hatred of each other forms the plot as each wants to kill the other, despite having a master and pet relationship. At the end, Bâtard ends up killing his owner, but is later killed himself."

    Hmmm, why “The Call of the Wild,” which is about Buck, a St Bernard-Shepherd mix from Monterey, California, returning to “nature,” and not about “the man,” unlike “To Build a Fire,” which fits the cartoon a bit more?

    “Nancy” as in the comic strip, which you can find on GoComics.

    Except a latte is an espresso, pulled not brewed; otherwise, this fun.
