Content warning: sexual assault

Somehow I keep signing up for the FTB the day after something pretty awful happens in the NHL (see last week after Kane's presser). Needless to say I won't be signing up for many FTBs anymore. Yes, that's the reason.

When I found out that the rape kit from the Patrick Kane case had allegedly been anonymously dropped off at the accuser's mother's home, I started shaking. Details are scant at this point, but no matter what, something very wrong is happening. Everything about this is awful.

So, please enjoy these pictures of puppies.
