Strike a blow for animal rights. Whether you think it was a well written proposition or not, the general public in California has spoken, and they say that our farm animals deserve better treatment. WIth 28% of the precincts reporting, Proposition 2 has been deemed a winner with 2.4 million "Yes" votes - 62%. (Results courtesy of KTLA.com at 10:23 pm - local Los Angeles television station.)
We'd been waffling over the past few weeks on how to vote. There are compelling arguments for both sides. But it seems the overwhelming sentiment is that something is better than nothing. Congratulations to Wayne Purcelle and the HSUS on a successful campaign.
