I've been pretty MIA in the blogging world for the past few weeks -- both reading them and writing my own. Despite putting my request for veg*an stories on four veg message boards, only three people submitted theirs. So that was discouraging and prompted my hiatus, which may continue.
For now, though, I wanted to provide updates to past blogs. Barack Obama, of course, was elected president. Woo-hoo! Prop 2 (which phases out veal and gestation crates and battery cages in California) passed. Unfortunately, Prop 8 did, too, thereby banning same-sex marriage in California.
Massachusetts voters chose to ban greyhound racing (by 2010)! Illinois will not be getting a constitutional convention. And South Dakotans voted against a ban on abortion.
The U.S. Supreme Court has approved the Navy's use of sonar, despite the horrendous implications for whales and other marine life.
