SUN-SENTINEL -- Aug 10 -- A recent press release claimed that 43% of singles have Googled their new hottie before the first date. A press kit from Yahoo! Personals came in a silver cylinder with a bright red heart plastered across the front. In crisp white letters across the red heart, it read: "A New Best Friend? Yahoo! Personals presents dating advice for pet owners." When I removed the lid from the mail canister, it barked at me. I barked back. I mean, really, that was only polite, right?
Mark Brooks: People go nuts over their pets in America. Makes sense to encourage them to go nuts over each other.
