Not to get into a hair-splitting contest or anything, but the first thing you said was that it was "very touching." Let's just stick with that.

A lot of films, ads, and TV shows try to teach us something through their respective art forms. The absence of "actual" doctors, lawyers, or pro hopscotchers shouldn't really affect critical thinking...

Put another way, LaVar Burton and John Amos weren't actual slaves, but I still cry when I watch Roots.

You should have stuck with that. I have no problem with actors playing roles, the guy makes a great Native-American. It was an award winning commercial that got lots of air time. But when I found out he wasn't Native-American it made me think: ok, the sponsors want you to think they care about Native-Americans, their rich history and heritage but, apparently, they don't care enough to actually hire one for their add. So yeah, the fact that "Iron Eyes Cody" (aka Espera de Corti) is not Native-American definitely diminished the power of the add for me.

Hmm. You like splitting hairs, then.

It was a long time ago, sir. (Making an assumption here.)

I'll stipulate that perhaps they should have used an actual Native American. Back in those days, Hollywood (and Madison Avenue) weren't exactly beacons of inclusion or even racial accuracy. They're learning, because we've ALL learned.

It would be extra-special sauce indeed if you'd agree that, despite the DNA of the actor, littering is really, really bad. That's what we were supposed to learn.

Then we could move on. As it is, I just can't seem to let you have the last word.

It's a curse, but I'm taking my meds every day, so...

Default Dog owners take off after animals attack man playing disc golf at Picnic Island Park.

With video news report at the top (no dog attack).

I'm not sure what they did here: "Doctors had to remove part of Dillingham's hand to help it heal, but he still has full mobility in his fingers."

That sucks. Irresponsible dog owners with a complete disregard for others.

This could have happened anywhere...
but how come I'm not surprised it was FL?

That sucks. There's a fenced in dog park/beach at Picnic Island ffs, so why would the dogs be loose running around the open area of the park.
