Michael Vick Apology Note Sold; Proceeds to Help Pets

by at . Comments

Some good will actually come to animals because of Michael Vick.

Well, more accurately, because of the generosity of comedian Carol Leifer, who bought the note Vick used during his lame apology speech in Richmond, Va., with proceeds benefiting the Animal Cruelty Reward and Response Fund.

Earlier this month, we learned that the Humane Society was auctioning off the note that Vick - who's headed to the pen after pleading guilty to federal dogfighting charges - used as he made his contrite speech. See below...

Apologize? Check. Talk about kids? Check? Michael Vick had it all covered.

Vick jotted down six points which called for him "to apologize for what I've done, apologize to his coach and team, tell young kids that I acted immature, ask for forgiveness, take responsibility, and remind people that we all make mistakes."

There's also a side note that says simply "dogs have suffered." Well, that depends on how you look at it. I mean, are some animals not bred to be electro-

Never mind. But we're hoping the powers that be can somehow work something out so that Michael Vick and O.J. Simpson can become cellmates.

Whoa, whoa, whoa..."Michael Vick and O.J. Simpson can become cellmates"? ....WHAAAAT! How is the killing of animals on the same level as killing two innocent human beings? I dare you to say outright that they are equally significant. I mean, you might as well be blatant about it.
Congratulations THG, you've just insulted murder victims everywhere by suggesting that the death of dogs is on the same level as the death of human beings. Okay, we get it. Michael Vick should be punished for his crimes, that's a given, but before we continue to obsess over what he did, let's get just as angry, if not more angry, over a case like the one of the woman in West Virginia who was mercilessly tortured, raped, and forced to eat animal feces for days. Where is your cynicism for that? Why not hope that the "powers that be" put people who do such things in a cell with O. J. Simpson?
