TODAY'S BACKPAGE

WELL, HERE WE GO, AGAIN. JUST A FEW DAYS AGO I WAS ON THE FRONT PAGE RIGHT ON TOP OF HILLARY CLINTON OVER ON CNN GO, THE ASIAN VERSION OF THAT BIG TED TURNER NETWORK.
WE SLID BACK A FEW PAGES SINCE THEN. THERE'S PLENTY OF NEWS GOING ON AROUND THE WORLD, I GUESS. SO, I'LL JUST HAVE TO SCHEME AND PLOT, CRAWL AROUND WITH MY TRUSTY CAMERAS AND FIND A NEW ANGLE TO GET BACK IN PRINT SOMEDAY.

BEING IT WAS MY FIRST TIME GETTING PUBLISHED IN ANYTHING AS BIG AS CNN, I KEPT QUIET WHEN I SAW SOME OF THE CONTROVERSY TAKING PLACE IN THE COMMENTS.

SOME FOLKS COMPLAINED ABOUT ANIMALS BEING ABUSED FOR PLEASURE OR ENTERTAINMENT.

PROBABLY BEST FOR ME TO KEEP MY MOUTH SHUT.

I SPENT A FEW MONTHS AROUND THESE FIGHTING BULLS AND KNOW THEY'RE JUST REALLY BIG PAMPERED PETS.

ONE GUY COMMENTED IT WAS EVIL 17TH CENTURY STUFF AND AS BAD AS DOG FIGHTING AND COCKFIGHTING.

I'M NO FAN OF EITHER OF THOSE SPORTS, MYSELF AND IF I WAS I'D BE DAMNED IF I'D TAKE MY KIDS TO POSE ON A FIGHTING DOG OR CHICKEN'S BACK AFTER THE FIGHTS.

WHAT I REALLY WANTED TO SAY TO THE PEOPLE PROTESTING OKINAWAN BULLFIGHTS:

WHO GIVES YOU THE AUTHORITY TO DENOUNCE BULLFIGHTING?

TELL ME YOU'E NEVER EATEN BABY CARROTS.

INNOCENT LITTLE VEGETABLES RIPPED AWAY FROM THEIR ROOTS BEFORE THEY EVEN REACHED MATURITY JUST FOR YOUR PERSONAL SATISFACTION.

SEE THE BLOODLESS BULLFIGHTING ARTICLE AND COMMENT IF YOU'D LIKE. I'VE GOT OTHER THINGS I'M SUPPOSED TO BE DOING !
