The Rev. loves animals - they are delicious - no really I love me some cats and dogs, fish and fowl. They rock. They are our friends and companions. That said, here again we have a case of misplaced priorities. Animal rights activists think our biggest problem right now are the horse-drawn carriages in Central Park. There we go - that's our biggest concern right now. Not the ridiculous amount of tax hikes we will be seeing soon, as well as service cuts across the city, not the exorbitant bonuses Wall St. snakes are giving themselves in the face of a huge bail-out - no, what we need is to ban the ponies. It's things like this that make the rest of the world hate Americans and think we are stupid. We have the homeless families starving and freezing to death in our streets but we have a charity that's dedicated to banning carriage rides. Wow.
