Thanks for posting this, Lou.
One of the last paragraphs summed it up really well:
So the question is: where do we go from here? What's done is (unfortunately) done and we have to move on and address the issue of dogfighting in the United States and abroad. This grim issue requires the attention of every pet lover out there. The scenario involving Michael Vick has brought to light the fact that dog-fighting (and killing) is actually an acceptable form of sporting entertainment in some social circles. Allowing this to continue is dangerous, cruel and inhumane. It has to stop.

Great blog. I think it really focuses on the biggest issue, which is that dogfighting is a HUGE problem and needs to be addressed in a proactive manner, using the situation with Vick as fuel for the fire and an example that maybe more people will pay attention to a relate to.
