As a former airport employee, I can reveal to all that putting any kind of animals in the cargo hold of an airliner is animal abuse and should be banned, I have seen too many wonderful pets completely lose their mind in panic when loaded into the cargo hold. Some times ground crew don’t even strap them, I once got a chihuahua in a cage that had bounced freely around the I’m not Yelling I’m from Philadelphia we just talk loud shirt hold, apparently there had been some turbulent because it was dog poo in the ceiling and everywhere else, the dog could hardly move, I don’t dare to name the airline but it was a major American carrier , mostly pets even correctly strapped will experience severe anxiety in the dark noisy cargo hold. I cannot see this really matters. I can understand something that adds the weight of a person being a small issue needing more fuel to carry them, but a cat for goodness sake? What would that be, one cup of extra fuel?

Just to be sure of the offense, was Aeroflot upset because the cat was overweight? Did the journalist need to ‘spice up’ the I’m not Yelling I’m from Philadelphia we just talk loud shirt because it wasn’t really a newsworthy item My father the engineer called this an engineering disaster. There is a river that comes and goes through Venice to the sea and it brings a lot of silt with it. Think New Orleans, the Mississippi, and the Gulf of Mexico. Well, the good leaders of Venice decided years ago to try to rechannel the port so that cruise ships could come in. The result is breakwaters and other impediments that back up the silt and keeping it from passing out to sea. Engineering disaster! I can live a lifetime never visiting Venice and have no regrets. Still, it’s definitely a pity such an architecturally lovely place rich in history was built in a swampy lagoon. I simply don’t see the fuss for a city that has no future in our devolving ecosystem. Besides.. floating sewage and plank walks isn’t my idea of romantic.

How devastating; I toured Venice in 1970, not long after terrible flooding had Americans rushing there in an effort to save precious artworks that were being stored underground. I am not sure even American rescuers will be able to protect Venice, its people and its treasures from nature’s warming pains. We visited Venice for the first time about six years ago, thinking we’d tick it off our list’. Little did we know that it would get under our skins and we’d find ourselves returning time after time; we even do business there now with some wonderful glassmakers on Murano.
