Downton Abby Normal


I feel it's incumbent upon me to remind that Downton Abbey, BBC's hit on PBS, the 'let's-have-three-cheers-for-the-rich-toffs' series, has opened for the past four seasons with the same image of Lord Robert Grantham and Isis, his Labrador Retriever, walking up towards the palatial family home of the Crawleys.

Or, a higher class of soap opera with the high production values of British television -- and brought to you by the image of the hind end of a white dog.

Please feel free to thrill all humankind with the brilliance and importance of You. And forgo all civility (especially the passive-aggressive sort, aggression masquerading as mildness) . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

But, consider: Dogs have short attention spans, don't tolerate bullies, and we're notoriously thin-skinned -- so make sense, be brief, and play nice, or I'll bite you and pee on your leg. Bark Bark Bark Bark Bark Bark.
