A former tenant is getting sued because a dog she had there bit a guy,
and they are suing us too. The complainant doesn't have a leg to stand
on as far as holding us liable, but the person is just throwing spaghetti
at every wall, hoping that someone won't show up in court. If dogs
ceased to exist, I wouldn't miss them.
