"A plan to evacuate and care for the victims of a natural disaster, if it doesn't include their pets, is a lousy plan."

A quote from a letter written to the Washington Post by Jim Perkins, who commanded the U.S. joint task force that evacuated 21,000 Navy and Air force family members and their pets from the Philippines after the eruption of Mount Pinatubo in 1991.
