I almost wonder if we’re in the middle of a revolution. Could the tide finally, finally be turning?
Could media stories about killer monster Pit Bulls be falling out of fashion?
Could the press finally be realizing that people love to read happy ending stories about cuddly Pit Bulls leading fulfilling lives?
Wouldn’t it be nice…. and wouldn’t it be nice if that tide was enough to wash away Ontario’s idiotic, press driven breed
slaughtering specific legislation?
Hey, Mr. Media Journalist! Hey, you! Look at all the press frenzy a Pit Bull positive story can generate? Someone out there is getting a Pulitzer for this, trust us! Wouldn’t you like a Pulitzer, too? I bet you would. So, read these top Thirteen press positive stories on the Vick Pit Bulls, and go write your own!
Are you realizing yet what a bad, bad, badly chosen side of this argument you came down on? Are you feeling stupid yet, looking at all those pictures of happy, face licking Pit Bulls?
I bet you are. I just bet you are.
