He asserts several points in defense to his argument. I will refute his most relevant claims by using Peter Singer’s argument against “speciesism” and closely analyzing each of McMahon’s points.

    Man's Best Friend And Master

    1476 words, 6 pages

    Man’s Best Friend (and Master) Mark Doty’s poem, “Golden Retrievals,” shows the reader more than just the thoughts of a dog going for a walk. Through various poetic techniques, Doty is able to express the basis for a very serious human ailment which is present in (nearly) all of us. This chronic crisis of which we are guilty of is literally expressed in words better than any human could say.

Not only that, but the situati

    Four years ago, as I have previously stated in my personal speech, I met a wonderful person who came into my life and made a big difference. When I was about to give up on life because of health problems and because I lost my sister from Sickle Cell, the most wonderful person walked right into my life. You see all she said was hello, and that goes along way. When i'm sad she's there, when i'm burdened down with problems she is there. Even though she doesnt know anything about music when i'm upset about a song, or if my choir is not sounding like I want them to sound she is there. So my definit
