One in 8 million

IF you haven’t seen the New York Times online series “One in 8 Million,” today would be a good day to give it a try. It’s an ongoing series of audio slideshows, each profiling one of New York City’s residents. Each piece is brief, just about three minutes, and combines the subject’s voice describing some aspect of his life while a black-and-white slideshow scrolls by, showing the person in his daily environment. Two of my personal favorites–I don’t know what this says about me, and actually I’d rather not know–are The Urban Taxidermist and The Pathologist.

But the best one of all, and the reason I’m posting this in the first place, is this one: The Animal Rescuer. If you love dogs, you’ll like this very, very much.

And if you love dogs, why not consider a donation to the all-volunteer Hound Welfare Fund? Donations are tax-deductible, and 100 percent of your donation will go directly to the hounds’ care. If you want to wear your support on your sleeve, consider buying some Hound Welfare Fund merchandise, including polo shorts shirt, I mean (but what a curious idea “polo shorts” are), and caps!
