Bloviating Zeppelin: Warrior

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

"George," a 9-year-old Jack Russell terrier in New Zealand happens to be one such hero. To wit:

George, who had a heart problem, won fame after defending five children from the pitbulls in the small North Island town of Manaia a week and a half ago. The two pitbulls rushed at the five children on the street, prompting George to charge the much larger dogs as the children escaped.

Unfortunately, George was badly mauled by the band of pit bull terriers and had to be put down because of the extensive injuries he sustained.

None of the children were bitten or injured.

It seems that George's tale inspired Jerrell Hudman, 58, a US Marine for 30 years, to send his Purple Heart medal (acquired during his service in Vietnam) to owner Alan Gay. Hudman said:

It's truly tragic that he paid with his own life for his instinctive act of courage."

Hudman said he sent his medal because the dog was "a little warrior."

Deeds, not words.

Ranando: sorry, didn't mean to do that! But he was a great dog, and I thought it needed to be seen.

George is a Hero, but so is that Marine.

Thank you, BZ. We need to be reminded of ALL life's Heroes.
