The Good – Letter to the Editor educates on puppy mills: A writer of a letter to the editor of the Gaston Gazette (NC) seeks to educate readers about the poor choice of buying puppies without visiting the breeder.

Rick Berman pens a misinformed message on The Daily Caller: He is far from being an expert on anything animal-welfare related, yet he tries to define animal rights versus animal welfare.
