Re: trackstar's Needle Exchange

City people. Appalling behavior towards an animal that was just looking for an evening snack and a quick "Hi Mom" on camera. Shame on you, Joe. Amazing. He acted like a big baby.

Re: trackstar's Needle Exchange

OK, don't know the people, but that's exactly what we want for their artificial versions :-) BTW, I thought about tracking the forum sentiment since the start... do you think it's interesting?
