Oh no, not this claim again. What wages do dogs get paid? Cows?

Humans are different, you say? How? They're sentient, yes. Now assume

Jeane L. Dixon, world renowned psychic, died Saturday (1/25) at age 79.
There was almost universal sadness and lament throughout the world of
celebrity psychics. Contacted at her home, Dionne Warwick's spokeswoman
said that "[Miss] Warwick is beside herself -- none of us expected this
to happen."
