Garden View: Michael Vick

peace, sistergarteners. i've waited to comment here on michael vick's situation until i could formulate exactly what i wanted to say. what strikes me the most about the public reaction has been that countless athletes and entertainers have caused far greater harm to people (women, in particular) and have garnered far less criticism for it. i think it goes without saying (but i'll say it) that no one has the right to mistreat animals. i would just like to see people get as upset about domestic violence, child abuse, and the myriad other crimes against people. furthermore, michael vick has served his time.
