Going downhill

I've been trying to figure out what's wrong with the Independent. It is still very good at dispensing information (what a newspaper is supposed to do) about politics, live music and the ahhts scene. In fact, if I close my eyes I think I'm in Paris!

When I open them again, I see litter, trash, refuse, garbage, junk, debris, potholes and cigarette butts, with some mountains in the background, if the sky is not overcast. And, of course, it's hard to see past the advertising and tacky logos on everything from bus benches to supermarket carts.

HI MY NAME IS REX
I am a 7 year old, 4 1/2 lb. male Lynx Mini Rex rabbit. Curious, good-natured, and easy-going best describes me. As an indoor bunny, I am litter box trained and enjoy nibbling on a daily diet of hay and fresh greens. My coat is dense, smooth and level with a firm, plush texture so grooming is not necessary. I am very affectionate and love being petted and held. While Rex is hoping to find his new forever home soon, some of his best furry friends at SAFE PLACE FOR PETS are in need of a temporary home with a foster family. For more information about Rex or to find out how you can be a part of our Foster Family Connection please call SAFE PLACE FOR PETS at 719-359-0201 or visit www.safeplacepets.org. Our Pet Adoption Center is located at 1141 Manitou Ave
