Taking a Stand.................

I am taking a quick break from artsy stuff to step out of my comfort zone and take a stand.

I admit to not being very politically astute, and I don't really follow sports.

But the fact that the Philly Eagles have signed on Michael Vick does irk me.

He savagely mistreated a breed of dogs that is close to my heart. Wouldn't matter the breed - just that fact that he did what he did cannot not be righted by fines and jail time.

Rehearsed and pre written sound bites do not make me believe he is a changed person. Actions speak louder than words and I see no action behind the script.......

I discovered a great blog that expresses it more eloquently than I can - and there is a link to sign a petition about Vick.

Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming.........................


  1. Oh...I so agree with you. Daughter and son-in-law are in Eagles' territory and fans...and they are trying to justify it and say "he did his time" so he has every right to be in football again. I disagree.....professional sports people should be role models for kids and he surely is NOT.

  2. I guess I too think "he did his time". It's not really any different, than one of us being in jail and coming out and going back to a particular type of job we had. however, we're not the role model he is........I guess I don't over analyze things like this, as I know I can't control it or do anything about it.

  3. amen sistah ....
    too bad all of those dogs can't stand up and give their opinion
