I concur with Mike. The whole over-the-top thing over Lou's use of
the dog smacked of showmanship. That analogy has been around the
Internet for YEARS, and it makes a general point about
communication and relationships in this purely anonymous media,
not about nationalities or racism.

I would hope tempers could be calmed and we all get back to 
what we are here about, and it sure as hell isnt name calling.
