Opening Arguments


I'm no fan of excessive regulation, but this doen't seem unreasonable:

The Bloomington City Council approved a change the city's animal code Monday night.

The new ordinance limits the number of cats and dogs a resident can own to 19.

Anbody who needs more than 19 dogs and/or cats has a problem. The ordinance, in keeping with the spirit of the state's actions on puppy mills, also calls for pet stores to reveal the history of the animals they sell. I can just see the commercial.

"Could I see the pet fax on that dog, please?"

"I have something better -- a signed statement from the last owner."

"Just show me the pet fax."

"Is there anything I can do to put you with this dog?"

"SHOW me the PET FAX."
