puppy mill industry. I am sure those poor dogs being held there, esp. the abused breeding females, would thank you as well, if they could. It is so true, the people involved in this brutal business are only interested in profits. Animals cannot fight for themselves, we have to do it for them. A lot of people do not think about puppy mills, so your article was so necessary to open their eyes and THINK about where to get a puppy. All of us who care about animals are very grateful to you! Sincerely,
Barbara Baenziger Oceanside ••••• Dear Mr. Davis,
Thank you for your comprehensive article regarding puppy mills. Your article is very informative for the general public. It helps people understand why they should not be buying from pet stores that get their puppy inventory from these inhumane places who benefit from animal cruelty. Thank you, Rosemary Hutzley Mr. Davis:
Thank you for your wonderful
article in the Feb. 12th issue of the Paper about Puppy Mills, the bans that are in place in cities in San Diego county, and the work that's being done to get more cities to pass bans. I hope that your article is read by as many people as possible in SD county.

EXERCISE THREE: Freeze two metal bookends overnight. Strip to the waist. Invite a stranger into the room. Press the bookends against one of your breasts. Smash the bookends together as hard as you can. Set up an appointment with the stranger to meet next year and do it again. YOU ARE TOTALLY PREPARED!

The ‘Real’ Father of Electricity The Way Today’s World knows It
Nikola Tesla was born in Serbia on July 10, 1856. He was an inventor, electrical and mechanical engineer, as well as a futurist best known for his contributions in the design of the modern “alternating current” (AC) electrical system.
In 1882, Tesla began working for Thomas Edison’s Continental Edison Company in France, designing and making improvements to electrical equipment. In 1884, Tesla came to America where he was hired by Edison to work for his Edison Machine Works. Tesla's work began with simple electrical engineering and
quickly progressed to solving more difficult design problems.
Tesla was offered the task of completely redesigning the Edison Company's “direct current” (DC) generators. Tesla said he could redesign Edison's inefficient motor and generators, making an improvement in both service and economy. Edison reportedly replied: "There's fifty thousand dollars in it for you if you can do it.” Edison was notoriously stingy and probably didn’t have that sort of money.
After months of work, Tesla fulfilled the task and inquired about his $50,000 payment. Edison declared he was only joking.
"Tesla, you don't understand our American humor." Instead, Edison offered Tesla a $10 raise over his $18 per week salary, but Tesla refused the offer and immediately resigned.
Tesla was rightly concerned any innovation or discovery he made while under Edison’s employ would be claimed by his employer. So the innovator struck out on his own, setting up laboratories and companies to develop a range of electrical devices. His patented AC induction motor and transformer were licensed by George Westinghouse, who also hired Tesla as a consultant. Tesla’s work in electric power
