Sen. Nan Rich: Seriously, Florida, It's Time to Stop Humping Animals
I guess our groundbreaking feature story last August -- which inspired a piece of art -- did not inspire Rich to abandon her legislation.
I won't go through all the moral arguments (check out the feature if that's what you want), but it really is a pointless bill. There are plenty of available laws -- animal abuse, for instance -- that can be used to prosecute someone who's caught doing the nasty with a pet or farm animal. But the best idea is to just simply tackle some other pressing state issue. There are approximately a thousand of them that deserve higher priority than bestiality.
