There are a couple of things I find interesting about this. 1. I hadn’t realized there was a long standing belief that fish don’t feel pain. I’ve been fishing and each time I have pulled a fish up, I noticed it flipped and flopped around as it gasped for something to breath. Seems like pain too me. 2. It’s deplorable, to me, to subject any animal (or fish) to pain to research pain. 3. The accompaning picture shows a fish on a hook. Kind of like showing someone beating a dog to illustrate animal abuse.

Gotta love a stupid criminal. They make the police’s job so much easier.
My house is haunted. Here are the weird things that have happened in the last week or so: 1. My girlfriend came to me and asked why I had locked the bathroom door. I hadn’t. 2. The Aggie’s collar was on Dash and Dash’s on Aggie. 3. The alarm on the clock above the TV was turned on. We never turn it on. 4. My pillow cover was on inside out last night. (Okay, I probably did that one in my sleep ).
I wondered how long it would take a pro-choice organization to oppose pressing a murder charges against Scott Peterson for the murder of his pregnant wife. NOW almost immediately came out against it, but it looks like they are backing down. I understand the position they took, I just think it was really poor timing on their part.
That said, it’s been interesting listening to the radio talk-show hosts. Bill O’Reily had a comment this morning about politicizing the murder of a child by NOW. The implication is that those who are pro-choice “know abortion is wrong” and are doing and saying things to be malicious. It’s, to paraphrase Napoleon, easier to believe in maliciousness then difference.
I am so going here! Imagine an entire museum devoted to science fiction. Now if I can just sit in The Time Machine, my life would be complete. And yes, I do have a girlfriend. She lives in Canada. I met her at Niagra Falls.
This kid may be smart, but I can probably kick his ass in a fight! Okay, maybe not, but I’m still taller (for now). Stupid smart kids.
