This is why Nathan Winograd is my Hero

Nathan Winograd has the most awesome of posts on his blog right now - it's all about how the HSUS uses it's power to make people afraid of dogs and cats and perpetuate myths and allows animal control agencies across the USA kill animals - and continue breed bans, and heavily regulate dog owners - he also talks about an interview between Jon Katz and the HSUS.

I have always intensely disliked Jon Katz - he's supposedly been a friend to dogs and written sweetsy dog books - but in an interview I read once he didn't believe that dogs had souls - and right there I knew that he saw dogs as being less than alive and I knew that he didn't really like his dogs. And from that moment I didn't believe a word he said whenever he was talking about his love of animals.

I think everyone who's into animal welfare should read this post by Nathan Winograd - you'll learn tons of stuff - it's at - it's so articulate and eloquent, you'll have your socks knocked right off your feet.

    Nathan really is the bomb...agreed.

    It would be so cool if he went on Ellen or something. He's so sensible...people would listen.
