Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick was convicted on federal and state felony dog fighting charges in 2007 and as one of the conditions of his parole, he was not legally able to own a dog.

In Cod We Trust

Recently the Sunday Times started an uproar in Great Britain when it reported that only 100 cod remained in the North Sea due to over-fishing. The blokes who actually work in the industry and make their living fishing were up in arms. Some were just certain that the Sunday Times had published the gross error on porpoise.
