For farm animals, China is America 2.0 I received this from Chris in China, and it underscores the importance of posting videos beyond YouTube. Dear MFA, Youtube.com is blocked in China.

In America, we demonize not only certain animals, but certain people. Check this out. link]. It saddens me, and I find it extremely disturbing, that a five-year old child is giddy, and his parents (and the journalists on this program) are so pleased that he killed a 35-40-year old alligator.
