If you love dogs...

...or any other animals, for that matter, you will probably appreciate Jonah Goldberg's column today regarding the Michael Vick controversy.

"Torturing a dog or a cat for sport is not disgusting because animals have rights, it is repugnant because human beings have obligations. If animals look to us as gods, and we in turn torture them for our amusement, have we not willingly made ourselves into devils?"

Thanks for commenting on my writeup. I had not read his column until you pointed it out. Thanks for that. Good column. I especially like the part about our winghounds.

He really put into words what no one else has been saying, they are all interested in how this has effected Michael Vick's career.

It surprises me that people use animals for sport and gambling still. The Vick situation and the newest one with the rapper, appall me.

Zorra - here are the five questions for ya:

1. What is your favorite type of art? Do you have a favorite artist?

2. What's the worst book you ever had to read? Why did you dislike it?

3. What is the weirdest thing that ever happened to you?

4. What is your biggest fear and how do you conquer it?

5. If Mindy and I were stoppin' the towncar at your place, what would you cook for us for supper?

Leave us a note in my comments to let everyone know when you've answered.
