Senator Byrd Speaks Out on the Vick Case

I think it's safe to say that when the politicians start talking about you on the floor of the Senate, you're probably finished in the NFL.

The affection that a dog provides is unlimited, unqualified and unconditional. Dogs protect us, assist those of us with afflictions and provide hours and hours and hours of enjoyable companionship.

Therefore I take great satisfaction in knowing that if the people allegedly involved in this outrageous business are found guilty, they will have to answer to our judicial system, and may God help their souls. Madam president, I am confident that the hottest places in hell are reserved for the souls of sick and brutal people who hold Gods creatures in such brutal and cruel contempt.

I am very happy that Senator Byrd spoke on the floor about this matter. It adds weight to the issue and shows how far we have come in this country in our love for animals. There is still a lot of work to be done on animal welfare issues, but I have to say I never thought anything would be done about Vick's dogfighting. I thought that he would get away with this because he's rich and a member of the NFL. I also thought that people would just "pooh pooh" the whole thing.

Sometimes it's nice to be wrong.
