I don't use either word Johnny!! And as for the c**p word I just HATE it!! Zak will sometimes say that the food in a pub/restaurant is c**p; or tv is c**p. I always tell him off and ask what is wrong with the word "rubbish" instead?!!

He usually says something on the lines of "Because it's not rubbish, it's c**p!!".

Pah.

Anne, just read the article you posted. It reminded me of a recent Supreme Court decision made here in April. It was about watching videos of pit bull fights vs Free Speech. The details are gory, but the fact that the Supreme Court went in favor of Free Speech didn't shock me, but it is sad that a law won instead of common sense.

I was sickened by the thought of the 'crushing' videos (as mentioned in the article) Loretto as well as the fighting tapes.

:(

I was too Anne. I just don't know where this voyeuristic age is going to take us. Who the heck would want to watch that let alone participate in it?

Not me, that's for certain and DEFO not my husband, or 'St Zak of Assisi' as I call him!!

He isn't a wimp or soppy by any means BUT he can't watch cruelty to animals or even animals who are ill on TV.

I haven't clicked the link but these dogfights are usually held for the purpose of gambling. Why can't they just gamble on greyhound racing instead ?

You know what though Johnny, I was in Borders book store and met a woman collecting for the Greyhound rescue. She told me when their racing life is over, they are let starve to death. I started off the conversation telling her that my Grand Uncle in Ireland used to breed greyhounds for racing, not the best conversation starter I have to admit.

Yes Loretto, maybe I didn't pick a great example there. Greyhounds make fantastic pets and I've met quite a few people on my walks who have rescue dogs.
When I was young, there was a Greyhound track in my town so you'd see a lot of Greyhounds being walked.

I was told a few years ago how dogs that didn't make the grade on the track were disposed of. There was a local guy who would turn up, kill them with a hammer blow to the head and toss them into the local canal.
