Open line, news and a message from a dentist who doesn't hunt lions

Here's your open line and today's video. Also:

* DON'T SHOOT THE DENTIST: Hagerty Family Dental in Russellville has been getting a ton of attention on the web for the sign he posted outside his practice. Huffington Post reports:

Tisa Hagerty wasn't trying to make a political statement when she put up the sign announcing that her husband — dentist Curtis Hagerty, of Arkansas' Hagerty Family Dental — doesn't hunt lions.

"We thought it was funny," says Hagerty, a hygienist and the person who came up with the brilliant bit of advertising. "And it's true. The dentist doesn't hunt lions. Or anything else."

Tisa Hagerty added:

"We like people to smile," she says. "We're not here to hurt you."

Interesting, because I saw my own dentist Monday and he was moaning how every single news report about the killing of Cecil spoke of the Minnesota "dentist" who did the deed. "If a lawyer had done it, would they call him a lawyer every time?"

* LETTER TO THE EDITOR: I got one today referencing my earlier post in defense of Planned Parenthood and abortion rights. From Cecilia Gibbs, hometown not given.

I read your column on the defence of planned parenthood. At first I became angry but then I realized you really can't help how you reacted to the videos. The only thing I can determine is that you have no moral conscious or heart.

May God have mercy on your soul.
