In my case, it s just because the sound of my cats licking that crinkly material was enough to drive me batty. But for one of my friends, keeping plastic out of her cats mouths is a matter of life and death: One of her beloved furry friends actually ate enough of a plastic bag to result in a midnight trip to the emergency vet and surgery to remove the stuff from his stomach.

Veterans Day arouses three emotions in most Americans: solemnity, because it celebrates the veterans who have defended our great country; sadness, because so many have lost their lives in the process; and pride, because they have fought so well. The supreme value that our veterans have fought and died for (with some tragic exceptions) from the American Revolution to the Civil War to two World Wars is freedom. America is the country of freedom. We were the first to declare that government exists to serve men; men do not exist to serve government.
