Thanks for that wonderful summary! I've been trying to carve out time to read your full report, but haven't been able to do so. Thank you CI, Nancy and Seeta for hosting this amazing summary!

 

for a world without cages,

Wow! Kay, I am going to have to read this about a million times. So thorough. Thank you and there is no more important topic. 

 

I am fighting hard with myself every day to stop my loathing of these greedy people who would destroy the beautiful Earth and every person who is not white, male and rich (don't know where they think people come from - hint-women). 

 

OT and I hope you don't mind but this is so wonderful that I wanted to spread it around a little.

Hey Seeta!! Hey Nancy!! Hope the OT link is okay. 

 

Deepest respect to all of you.

Kay, thank you for this piece! The hate frame's shortcomings are disturbing but it's rarely discussed in a frank manner. More, please.

this s always a stunning stat --

Most law enforcement agencies within a state jurisdiction do not report any incidents. For example, in 2009, only 67 out of 413 agencies in Virginia; five out of 487 Georgia agencies reported incidents. Less than half the participating agencies in California reported incidents.--

 

i remember looking at data sets where many states ( eg Mississippi) did not report a single ahte crime for almost a decade

 

Right... enforcement is the key to this legisaltion
