At a rally in support of Mayor Wharton’s re-election campaign yesterday, dozens of pet advocates demonstrated in silent protest for shelter reform. There is a video report here where Mayor Wharton says he hasn’t made a final decision on the removal of the webcams yet and that, if MAS is privatized, the city will find new jobs for the current staff. Both of these tidbits are new information to me.
Matt Pepper described the protesters as follows:
“I think that they are struggling with a problem of perception versus reality,” he said.
Individuals who struggle with perception vs. reality are at best, too stupid to seek out and/or comprehend basic facts (such as a 77% kill rate) and at worst, severely mentally ill. If you attended the protest yesterday, or if you have protested from afar via letters, phone calls or other means, please let us know whether you are crazy or just dumb.
