Humor lives at the "Now or Never" blog

While catching up on my reading, I found a rather mystifying posting at the "Now or Never" blog. (It's recently moved, and now lives here:

The posting is from February 2nd. I don't know the author, but he or she may have been smoking crack during this week's cabin fever-inducing Snowmageddon. For example, the posting states:

The HSUS has a reputation for being a moderate organization that prefers to operate well away from the radical fringe...

Anyone with basic research skills will discover that today's HSUS is no longer a "moderate organization". They started out as a hands-on organization that actually pitched in and helped local shelters until the early 1970s. But mission creep set in, and the AR fanatics began to get a toehold with the rise of John Hoyt.

Nowadays, the HSUS is pushing the "Rescued To Death" agenda just as hard as PETA, the ALF, and similar organizations. Hardly any of their funds go to local animal shelters - this is why their TV advertisements, which make it appear the HSUS are funding them when they aren't - enrage me. (Okay, about 50 cents of each $19.95 monthly contribution might go to a local shelter. Let's give Wayne Pacelle his due.)

On a lighter note, you can now leave a comment at the Now or Never blog without getting a Wordpress account first. But so far, the only comments that have passed moderation have been kudos - from the same few people.
