Kudos to you, Governor Christie. So refreshing to see a governor who has a brain along with compassion. I'm unfortunate enough to live in Texas, under the rule of a governor who has neither.

Slowly, ever so slowly, the human race is evolving. I wonder if it will be too late to save the thousands of species now on the brink of extinction. Kudos to Governor Christie. Why is progress so slow? Why is there so much apathy to what we are inflicting upon our planet, therefore ourselves?

Hurrah for New Jersey! I hope this is just a beginning step in curbing and stopping animal abuse!
