First, let me say that I don't condone the behaviour of Michael Vick although I am a fan of Michael Vick as a great athlete. I think he's getting his just desserts for the killing and the inhumane treatment of the dogs in the whole dog fighting operation.

Now let's step it up a notch and consider the Iraq war. Is it inaccurrate to say that this is human fighting? Where is PETH ( People for the Ethical Treatment of Humans ) when you need them? Why is it that Bush, Cheney, Rove, and every congressional member ( Hillary included ) who voted for the war are not having criminal charges leveled against them like Michael Vick? IMO, the crimes commited by this band of outlaws far outweighs the crime of Michael Vick, yet all of these outlaws get to keep their high paying jobs and few of them are likely to ever see the inside of a prison.

I agree 100%---The problem is, what can be done about it?. You've only pointed out the never-ending inconsistencies in human behavior, and the enormous ironies around us. It's interesting that some of the most strident, unforgiving people on earth are those who preach "tolerance". And of course, there's nothing like blowing a few people out of bed at night to remind them just how much you care about them. It's like saying, "we're going to bring you Democracy and peace if we have to KILL you to do it !!"

This is why I like to think there's intelligent life on other worlds. Surely what we see HERE can't be the best that God can do....there MUST be something better out there somewhere...
