 • Editorial Comment: Shoot the TV guys; spare the dogs.

  Yesterday’s WORD: Did you miss yesterday’s WORDs in the form of a hilarious TV listing for “The Wizard of Oz,” written by journalist Rick Polito in the Marin Independent Journal in 1998? Click here. See Polito’s That TV Guy Facebook page and blog.
