You guys keep pushing my topic down the page, so I'll just add occasional tidbits to ensure that my message doesn't get lost. ;-)

Here's a list of groups that endorse Prop 2:

The Humane Society of the US
California Veterinary Medical Assn
Center for Food Safety
Union of Concerned Scientists
Sierra Club
Consumer Federation of America
California Democratic Party
California Council of Churches
IMPACT

Pretty credible group, eh? Somebody for everyone, methinks.

I also saw yesterday that Costco sells "cage-free eggs" in a cardboard carton in the Danville store. Maybe they always have, but this was the first time I noticed it. Here's a chance to support farmers who are treating their hens better than most do.

I also saw an anti-prop 2 ad on tv last evening -- all-fear, all-the-time, pretty much as expected, and answered above.

Please vote YES on Prop 2.

Please Don't forget to "be kind to our fine feathered friends" on Tuesday.

Prop 2 -- it's a square deal for the animals who bring you a square meal.

Thanks, Danville! This was a remarkable win, with margins of 63/37 statewide, and 67/33! in Contra Costa.

Animal-related legislation has historically had a tough-go in Sacramento; just maybe, this victory will signal to the legislature that "dumb brutes" have a constituency hereabouts.

Remarkably, in no other segment of the economy has price, rather than quality, been such an important determinant of buying decisions. And those choices determine what we feed to ourselves and our families!

Just maybe, that's about to change?

Thanks again for supporting this Prop in overwhelming fashion!
