ISIS uses Twitter and manipulates it, participates in documentaries, publishes its own magazine, and is making a film whose teaser, worthy of a Hollywood blockbuster, is available online. This terrorist empire knows how to generate buzz.
I mailed in the cat application and went to the county animal shelter to look for a dog. The first pen by the entrance had a giant tortoise in it. I'd ruled out tortoises, so I went on.
