"A clash between the operator of the Plaza Mexico bullring and lawmakers over the rules governing public events in Mexico City has halted amateur bullfighting this season, which is a training ground for future stars," reports the Houston Chronicle. "Unless the issue is resolved soon, it threatens the regular bullfighting season, scheduled to begin in early November." Oh, nooooooo!!!!
UPDATE 6/30: In another blow to this venerable bloodsport, children under 14 are now banned from attending bullfights in Catalonia, making the "Supporters said they hoped the ban would diminish children's exposure to violence." Ya think?
