Business as usual in Missouri

Just a short note.

I listened to all of the debate on SB 113, which guts Proposition B. The debate was pretty bad, and I'm incredibly disappointed that none of the pro Prop B senators took a stronger stance. More disappointed that the bill was perfected, as is.

However, this is just the first vote to formalize the language. There's still a final vote.

What bothered me the most is that I knew how much Prop B and SB 113 were misrepresented, and I couldn't do a thing about it. I doubt I'll be able to listen to the House debate, not after this.

This is cowardly, but I wish I had never read the breeder inspection reports. I know what the dogs' lives will be like if Proposition B is repealed, and this knowledge is just tearing me up.

Sometimes ignorance is bliss—especially in Missouri where small minded men seek to keep this state hidden in shadows, facing backwards rather to the future, and buried in dog crap.

I need to get back to technology. Yeah, work on HTML5 will cheer me up. I can't do anything about HTML5, but at least no small furry animal will suffer from any stupidity with HTML5.

Well, I hope no small furry animal is hurt. I don't know how much hair some of you have on your backs...
