LOWELL, Mass. - A trailer carrying dozens of puppies to Northeast pet stores caught fire just off an interstate, killing all of the estimated 60 dogs inside, authorities said.
What, you may wonder, does Robin Hayes, Republican Congressman from NC, have to do with 60 puppies dead in a tragic truck fire on a Massachusetts highway?

Enron witness found dead in park
A body found in north-east London has been identified as that of a banker who was questioned by the FBI about the Enron fraud case.
From Charlotte's WCNC:
The act would give motorists more access to E-85, a mix of ethanol and petroleum gasoline. Hayes proposes giving gas station owners a 75 percent tax credit or up to $30,000 to introduce or make more available the 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent petroleum blend at gas stations.
"It is less expensive, it is biodegradable, it is bio-friendly, and it's also more efficient at a higher octane than regular gasoline," said Hayes.
Unfortunately for Hayes, his voting record on energy policy and his relationship with big oil is public knowledge.
According to Public Policy Polling survey released April 28, 40% of likely voters support Democratic challenger Larry Kissell while only 32% support incumbant Republican Robin Hayes. When undecided voters are factored, Kissell maintains a lead of 43% to 35% over Hayes.
When asked if they want to re-elect their Congressman, a mere 28% of those surveyed said yes while 48% said they would vote for someone new. According to Dean Debnam of Public Policy Polling, 'vote-to-re elect' numbers less than 50% are a sign of vulnerability.
