Considering that pigs are among the most sadistically abused (and intelligent) beings on the planet, it is bewildering that a dead one be roasted at a fundraiser that is addressing brutality and victimization [“Native Kitchen Hosts a Benefit Pig Roast,” June 1, Xpress]. It served no one and only alienated potential supporters.
I hope that Our VOICE is more sensitive in its future fundraising efforts.
