RE OP-ED writer Dom Giordano, the teacher-turned-talk-show-host - and just another hater of Michael Vick - who wants to impose his opinion and views of parenting:

Who gives you the right to tell parents what to buy their children? You gave up teaching, and, boy, are parents from that school happy. Were you still there, your children would probably never learn to give a person a "second chance."

After reading all that garbage, what you really want from Vick is his checkbook. (Are you thinking, "I'm not paid that much!"?) And letter-writer Jennifer Augustin obviously wants a check, too!

What you really want is money.

Dom, please never teach again, and Jen, you read the book, I believe ya, but get off Vick's back - and his checkbook.
