The Sun Interview

Inhumane: Nathan J. Winograd On Reforming Animal Shelters
“All throughout history, regardless of the situation . . . no one has suggested euthanizing the human victims of abuse and violence. The focus has always been on remedying the abuses and violence. You don’t kill the victims. . . . Animals deserve nothing less.”
By Lisa Sandberg

“If an animal does something, we call it instinct; if we do the same thing for the same reason, we call it intelligence.”

The High Heart
Fiction by Joseph Bathanti
[February 2005]

“Keith was raised strict Catholic and worried it was murder, an unpardonable sin, and that he and Bonnie would be cursed by God for the rest of their lives. I didn’t necessarily believe this, but then again I wouldn’t have been surprised if we’d all been struck by lightning as we left the clinic. More than anything else, I believed in inevitability — which in my mind was the same thing as God.”
