A newspaper where pets matter more than people?

Via a newspaper exchange, I get copies of my former newspaper, the Marble Falls Highlander, at my new location.

Well, I knew it offered to run pet obits, but we didn’t get any while I was there.

What I didn’t know until now was that, although obits for people are free for the first 500 words, the pet obit has a minimum charge of $10.

Never heard of such a thing before, with a newspaper valuing pets above people. That said, readers can probably insert jokes about this if they want, and there’s nothing I can do to stop you.
