"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

We Americans are an odd lot, aren't we?

Four skinny puppies and their sad-eyed mother have been delivered from Iraq to a Camarillo woman. Marcy Christmas says she felt compelled to push for a rescue after spotting the dogs sitting forlornly in the desert behind a T-V news reporter.

Christmas beamed as the four-month-old puppies tumbled out of Air France cargo carriers into a warehouse hangar in Los Angeles yesterday. The puppies wrestled with one another and showed no signs of fatigue after surviving war, hunger and a 93-hundred-mile journey from the Jordan-Iraq border.

Christmas spotted the dogs April tenth on a television news report. She has been rescuing dogs for decades and does volunteer work for the Doris Day Animal League.

Christmas agreed to pay the one-thousand dollars in transportation costs.
