WA. The Evergreen State Where The Horses Are Forever Green
Thank you Coreene.
I also hope that the new Amature Issue does not feature a client of Mr PV like it did last year.
I love my weekly COTH but that is one article that I did not like.

Gag me with a spoon.
Why not have donated that $$ to the ASPCA as well, instead of spending it on an ad to blow sunshine up your own ass?<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
Now, Coreene...Lets be realistic. There is a VERY simple explanation as to why he didn't do that. The ad that would needed to be purchased to blow the amount of sunshine up that ass to brighten up the dark hole where his soul and common sense of decency used to live could NEVER be acquired with less than half the proceeds...

Absolutely spot on, sister!
Hitch - totally ironic that in your post on this particular thread you used the word "KILLER" - as an adjective, but I still can't get over the ironic black humour in that one.
The last massive PV thread revolved around the original ad placed by him shortly after 9/11 regarding the donation of 1/2 his training proceeds to the ASPCA. I admit I missed the 11/15/02 follow-up ad.
Hopefully that original thread is still available in the "Favorites" section. If no, it's too bad - and I must admit, although I hold very strong anti-PV opinions, those who expressed sentiments opposite of mine did so in a very clear manner.
Those posters didn't (and won't) change my mind but kudos to them for jumping into a very emotional subject.

My thought exactly!! talk about deceiving ads!! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]
"fighting stupidity; one step at a time" -- a wise COTHer
The ad is a 1/4 page on page 12 in large bold type, without any graphics, and reads in its entirety:
"As a result of Paul Valliere donating half of his lesson proceeds, the ASPCA has received another generous contribution to aid those animals affected during the tragedy of September 11th. We thank him!"
It has no indication of who placed the ad.
"I don't want to sound like a broken record here, but why is it that a woman will forgive homicidal behavior in a horse, yet be highly critical of a man for leaving the toilet seat up?" Dave Barry
I say the same thing every time the Rev. Al Sharpton has something to say regarding ANOTHER perceived civil rights issue, every time the public hears from OJ Simpson, and every time Mike Tyson assaults someone and gets arrested...again. ENOUGH of you people already! Haven't you learned that the public spotlight does not display your charming personalities very well?
As for Paul Valliere, unless publicly advertising good deeds is part of his humane education penalty, he needs to "shut up and go away" too, and avoid publicizing his acts of contrition. It just makes him seem like even more of a pompous jerk. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]
