    It's something that bothers me more than most things.  Sometimes I have to just shut it off.  I have nightmares.  What little extra money I have is usually donated to animal orgs and food drives for animals at Christmas.  I am a vegetarian except for occasionally eating fish.  I would never own a fur coat.

    You don't know me.

      as well as Greyhound rescue groups.  I wasn't denouncing you for not having heard of the referenced person, I was pointing out the hypocrisy of our press.  I find it ironic that dogs being tortured in dog fighting is such a huge news item while Greyhounds being tortured for profit by businesses is seemingly acceptable to the media.

        I think it's so wonderful.  Why does our society allow this sick shit?  Like I said in another post, the way we treat animals kind of dovetails with how we treat the least among us human-wise in our society.
