Subject: RE: BS: Michael Vick, dog-fighter, is an Eagle
Quite the contrary, Q. No matter the prevalence of cruelty to animals (and in particular, dog-fighting, cock-fighting, badger-baiting, bull-baiting and bear-baiting) the activities are wrong and have no place in a civilised society. Nor do their proponents.
For some strange reason, sports stars are heroes and role models. Until Vick properly and convincingly demonstrates his understanding of his fault, and can be guaranteed to use any potential role model status to seek to exterminate these cruel "sport" he has no place in any public eye.
