NYC Cat Finally Rescued After 14 Days

For those of you in parts of the world that like to have their news focus on actual world events that matter, let me give you a little background here. For the last two weeks, we here on the east coast of the United States have had a story about a little kitten stuck in a wall pounded into our heads. In fact, just to let us know that rescuers finally managed to grab the kitten and pull it to freedom, they interupted the normal scehduled programs on many TV stations. You know, cause it's important.

After 14 days trapped in the innards of a Greenwich Village, NY building, Molly the cat finally emerged wearing a look on her face that said, "What's all the fuss about?"

How cute. I'm such an animal lover, I am, but I have to question the round-the-clock coverage of this story. Iran is producing nuclear weapons, al-Qaeda remains a threat to the entire world, the Iraqi war has been going downhill like a unsupervised toddler in a shopping cart on a hilltop Toys-R-Us and we've concerned ourselves with Molly the Cat.

As a crowd of reporters and onlookers jostled for a glance, the 11-month-old black cat appeared docile and unscathed despite her ordeal, which came to a happy end on Friday after a volunteer pulled her to safety from a crawl space.

I feel better. Hey, did we catch Osama bin Laden yet?
