Luna with her full winter coat looks like this. It being summerish, she got a haircut. Unfortunately, the hair cutter cut her tail too and her tail got infected and now she has a big bandage on it and is wearing a clear plastic lampshade thing around her head to keep her from biting it. She is doped to the gills and looks like a space dog from the planet of bad haircuts.

Certain readers of this weblog have urged me to share Luna's plight with the world.

That's the main thing that hasn't changed in the wake of the antitrust trial. That used to be enough. We're going to find out if it still is."
