Thank you dear Jill. Animals in experimental labs is just Mankinds insane need to tinker with things...proven it is NOT needed and if tests are needed, I say do it on all of the Screwballs that take up space on this Earth!

my pessimism is on steroids right now, so with a deep cleansing breath and a silent prayer to the heavens, I thank all those that made this possible..
and hope they follow through with the plan
