The American Humane Society is applauding Senators John Kerry and Barbara Boxer for their “swift action” (kudos to whoever slipped that adjective in) in introducing a bill to outlaw dogfighting. All fine and good, but I was struck by one of its provisions, the one “making it a federal offense to be a spectator at a dogfight.” I haven’t sampled such a draconian measure since the fourth grade, when Sister Ann Joaquim suspended not only two classmates who got into a fight, but all the rest of us who had gathered around to watch them. And we weren’t even placing bets.
