This is Nina, a very sweet pit bull STOLEN a week ago from Petal.
This pic of Nina chained on this giant chain was sent to the owner’s phone three days ago.
Please, Please Share to everyone you know. Someone knows who has this dog. If you have seen this dog, or have heard someone talking about getting a pit bull, please contact this family.
If this dog isn’t found, she will likely live on this huge chain for the rest of her life, or die soon in these THIEVES care. She was last spotted in Purvis.
***Please contact JR Reynolds through Facebook.

Portugese artist David Oliveira specializes in optical illusions that manipulate space. As if drawing in thin air, Oliveira creates wire sculptures that are three-dimensional but resemble line drawings from a distance.

Politics aside, Russell Brand’s essay about Margaret Thatcher in The Guardian is a wonderful, thoughtful and imminently readable piece of writing. After encountering the late former British P.M. watering flowers in a public garden, he reflects back on growing up under Thatcher’s government. I have had no particular feelings one way or the other about Russell Brand before reading this. Now, however, Russell Brand: count me a new fan. One among likely many, many new fans.
Perhaps my early apathy and indifference are a result of what Thatcher deliberately engendered, the idea that “there is no such thing as society”, that we are alone on our journey through life, solitary atoms of consciousness. Or perhaps it was just because I was a little kid and more interested in them Weetabix skinheads, Roland Rat and Knight Rider. Either way, I’m an adult now and none of those things are on telly any more so there’s no excuse for apathy.
Here is a 2009 FA interview with him which I am going to go listen to later.
