KENL News of Animals Around the World Pt. 1

(This is one story from a whole thing I wrote in 8th grade.  I will be posting further installments every so often for some time.)

        We will start our program tonight with a flood of poodles in Seattle, Washington.  The poodles came from far and wide, some even rumored to have come from Texas.  One in particular had a distinct Redneckistanian accent, but tried not to show it.  The poodles that came from the ocean decided to grow fish tails and live in the Everglades.  But the rest of the poodles seemed dazed, just hanging around until someone came to take them to a poodle shelter in Kansas.  The Kansans liked the poodles, and they soon had all found good homes.

More coming!

P.S. I won't be posting for about 3 weeks because I will be on vacation so don't bother checking back until the end of August.

America the...

So, I don't know who agrees or doesn't, but I think America the Beautiful is better suited for our national anthem.  What would other countries think of a country whose anthem is about a war?  Actually, now that I think about it, a lot of countries have anthems about war.  But the majority of our country's people can't even sing the entire thing easily.  The average range of the human voice is about 2 octaves, and I'm pretty sure the Star-Spangled Banner is about 3.  America the Beautiful is a wonderful song about how lovely our country really is, and it was made after our country was fairly complete.  I know it's a little late to change an anthem, but it just seems best...
