Hare Of The Dog - The Live Baiting Scandal

Last week (our time) the Australian Greyhound Racing Industry was in turmoil as ABC's Four Corners program uncovered the explosive and disturbing revelation that trainers were conducting live baiting. That is, training greyhounds to race with rabbits, possums and other animals on the lure as bait.

A Valentine's Day Special: Poetry In Motion

Wings On The Windscreen Of Love
A poem by Ronnie Peace
Driving the Highway near dusk
Two butterflies
in the distance
making love.
Sexy, sweaty Lepidoptera.
