My thoughts pivot to a press release that recently came across my desk. Up north there was a truck hauling live chickens that jackknifed on the highway creating a large accident scene. Most of the chickens perished as a result. A group is requesting to be allowed to erect a large statue of a chicken at this vary spot to remind people of the cruelty we’re inflicting on animals in general as a society.
The dog show and the chicken accident are completely different occurrences, yet are interrelated in a way. In my mind both are filed now in the same compartment of my brain.
