Unrelated to veterinary issues, I am ashamed by the most heinous violations committed by Russia against the gay community during a pride rally in Moscow. Activists were arrested during this peaceful rally, hours before the all-inclusive Eurovision finals were to take place (which was won in 1998 by Dana International, an Israeli transsexual). As GPOC writes on his blog: an attack on the liberties of one group is an attack against us all. Where are Toronto's lefty protests now? We must all decry Russia's devolution to barbarism.
It's 2009 and this is still occurring on this planet.
