According To Me
Tuesday, January 06, 2004
It is so damn cold here, wind chill of 0 degrees.
My fingers are freezing as I write this. I just read the latest on Mad Cow, and Sars. Animals are getting a bad rap. They are cruelly slaughtering cats in massive numbers in China. There is not even conclusive proof that they are the source of the infection. Canada has provided us with contaminated cows, which presumably have been slaughtered and fed to still more cows, thereby propagating the infection. So, the cows suffer because of people. That's my rant. And no, I am not a "radical" animal rights activist, or vegan, or even vegetarian. I am, however, in favor of treating all life on this plant with respect, especially that which is as evolved as animals. Seems we have a long way to go.
