Pit bulls are good pets

To the Editor:

Should pit bulls be allowed to be pets? I strongly believe pit bulls are good pets. Other people think pit bulls are bad pets.

Pit bulls can make good family pets, but it matters how you train them. If you train them good, they will be good. If you train them bad, they will be bad.

I have a pit bull, and he is the best puppy ever because I train him a lot.

You have to train them right because they can hurt you or others if you train them to be mean. They like to get exercise, they can protect you, and they are smart.

If you don’t train them, then you should not have a pit bull. But good owners should be allowed to have them.

After many months of soul-searching and discussion with my family, I decided not to run for re-election in March as Altamont’s Mayor.

As I entered a gas station this morning, a fresh wave of artificial, forced-air heat smacked me across the face, causing a shudder down my entire body.
