TMZ has an interesting post on an open letter from Al Sharpton, Russell Simmons, and PETA expressing outrage over the Michael Vick dogfighting charges. "Hurting animals for human pleasure or gain is despicable . . . Our battle must extend to those innocent animals who literally have no voice or choice." I highly recommend the text of the entire letter, which is available here.
As an aside, I'd like to think that the title of my post is more thoughtful (and perhaps less misogynistic) than the TMZ's title, but a better explanation is that I'm not as creative as the folks at TMZ.
