    So! instead of giving Criticism of others, give the man, your Opinion

    Could you consider the possibility that I wrote that as an observation and not as criticism...

    So, since he plans on living here, he probably will not sue Robinsons? My guess.

    I completely missed this post. My apologies for side tracking the thread. Perhaps you should open another thread with this as the opening post. It might draw a bit more attention than a post buried in an off track thread and you might find some support for your documentary.

    Pareho Mea Culpa and as I posted in a different thread "If I had to start a new thread each time I had a fleeting lucid thought(getting more so) I would forget that thought even before I hit, Start New Thread"

    Mark is actually meeting with some folks tomorrow to discuss this situation further. Some.....errr.... rather high-placed folks. Robinson's is part of that meeting, and it would be a great opportunity for them to step up to the plate and set some solid precedent. And don't forget, this just isn't a foreigner issue, it affects every individual that relies on assistance dogs. Let's hope it all works out!

    I wish they could do a better job enforcing the handicap parking violations as well.

    Very few natives, including those who would benefit from a service dog, have any clue what a huge difference in quality of life a well trained dog can be to a disabled person. They think Fido should be kept in a 3 foot square cage or chained to the gate on a two foot chain, "for appearances". Until a few in power start using service dogs, or they become part of the sopa operas, it is unlikely to change on it's own. I applaud Mark for his efforts.
