OK, I'm back. Where to start? How about with this story from last week: "A judge has ordered three days of bread and water for a woman convicted of animal cruelty in neglecting two horses. Melissa Dawn Sweeney, 28, was sentenced Monday to 30 days in jail after her Friday conviction on two counts of animal cruelty. Harris County Criminal Court-at-Law Judge Mike Peters sentenced her for neglecting two horses kept outside her Baytown mobile home. 'She's going to get more than her horses got,' Peters said Monday. The judge also ordered that enlarged photographs of her famished horses be kept posted on her jail cell wall, 'so she'll have a reminder of what she did.'" Well, that's fine as far as it goes, but what about all the other animal cruelty that goes on? When are pig slaughterers and chicken slaughterers gonna get their due?
