Repeating Myself

Reading this article, which seemingly tries to list every way any animal suffers, reminds me of the blog posts I've written before about how using big numbers hurts animals. (I'm also not a fan of titles that start by saying "We can't..." when we very clearly can.)

This is why, to be a broken record*, I still argue for harm-reduction advocacy.

*I'm hoping that the Amazon show The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel will make more people aware of records.   :-)
