Correction: Not crazy. Just shallow.

Here, courtesy of a respondent to an earlier blog, is a You -tube link that will almost certainly turn the hardest heart in the world against horse slaughter.
It is a discussion among Morgan Fairchild, Bo Derek and a couple of other famous boobs, including Willie Nelson, talking about the fact that we don’t slaughter eagles and we don’t “allow” people in the U.S. to eat dogs and cats.
Say, what? It’s against the law to eat dogs? I thought they just tasted bad. Anyhow, these are the experts who—or “whom” as Beth in Illinois would phrase it--helped convince Congress to outlaw horse slaughter in the U.S.
You can accuse me of not being a Willie Nelson fan, but even a backwoods hillbilly moron like myself has to admire Bo Derek’s talents. I admire both of them. Willie and Bo, that is.
I’m just less than convinced that these folks should be advising Congress on anything more substantive than wine vintages.
