Going to the Dogs...

This is it!! Real, historic change is finally here. When I voted yesterday, I could just *feel* such a difference in the air than when I cast my ballot 4 years prior. Now I'm anxious to see if Obama can live up to the hype.

I, for one, believe he can.

We also had a few important ballot questions on a local level here in Massachusetts yesterday. The one that I wanted to pass the most was the ban on greyhound racing and I'm pleased to say it was a success. It's no secret that it's just a cruel "sport," plain and simple. Now it will be gone by 2010.

Leading up to the election, "Yes on 3" commercials highlighted the horrid nature of greyhound racing and explained that it was time to save the dogs. The ads the opponents ran to encourage "No on 3" were, quite frankly, the dumbest and weakest rebuttles ever. The premise? "We are too old to learn new jobs and it's not fair:"

Are you kidding me?? For this "can't teach old dogs new tricks" (haha, I'm hilarious) argument alone they should have lost! If I could play the trombone, I'd have driven to the local track and played this Price Is Right old favorite when the results came in.

So I'm glad to say yesterday's election carried success for me on both local and national levels.
