I’m sure by now all of you have heard about yet another school shooting horror perpetrated by yet another deranged young man who apparently had easier access to deadly weapons than to a good psychiatrist, even as the outgoing lame-duck Republicans in the Michigan state legislature made it legal to carry guns in class. (No, I’m not kidding about that last bit. They really did.)

Because of all this, I figured it was time for some Emergency Couch Dog treatment.

I hope the kids who survived, and the loved ones of those who did not, have someone — two-legged or four-legged — to hug tonight and try to make it better.
