    towards “The Dog That Bit People” is that everyone knows the dog is bad but still continue to still deal with him.”A toast to the oldest Inhabitant:The Weather of New England “ is similar to “A toast to the oldest Inhabitant:The Weather of New England”in them both explaining all the things they don’t like about something but still dealing with it anyway. 2.”The Dog That Bit People” is the most effective use of satire.I say this because in the essay they don't try to train the dog to not bite people
