SB 250 is dead, yay [whew!]

According to a nice phone person in Assemblymember Monning's office as of 7:35 or so.

I sure hope this is the final stake through the heart of [state-wide] mandatory spay/neuter. From my lips to doG's ear...

UPDATE: Then again... see Save Our Dogs for the latest.

UPDATE II: It's 10:15 PM, and darned if this crappy bit of legislation isn't being voted on again. Sheesh.

Aaaaaaand UPDATE III: SB 250 not only merely dead, it's really most sincerely dead.

Huge props to Laura S of Save Our Dogs for all she's done and continues to do for dogs and the Californians who care about them.


And so to bed.

No kidding.

Wait — how did that last comment make it past the PG filter? [shakes monitor, examines keyboard, wrinkles brow]

heheh.. according to email from CDOCA this AM, the stake was driven just before midnight last night. You gotta kill the undead before they rise...

Zombie bill needs to stay dead - or it will eat dogs' brains!

Excellent Wizard of Oz reference!

I think my favorite line in that movie belongs to the Wizard/Professor Marvel, who says to Dorothy, "I'm an old Kansas man, myself — born and bred in the heart of the western wilderness." Amazing and moving to think that Kansas was that, once, and not too many generations ago.

and of course JF Coopers' tales take place in NY... when old man Natty Bumpo heads out "west" to die on the prairie wilderness.. it's Illinois.
