"Of course you realize, dis means war."

Catalonia bans bullfighting. Via The NYTimes "Lawmakers in the northeastern Spanish region of Catalonia voted to ban bullfighting on Wednesday, dealing the most significant blow so far to a tradition considered by many Spaniards to be an essential part of their cultural patrimony. In many ways, however, the ban reflected less on the animal rights than on a political debate over Catalan identity and a push by local parties for greater independence from the rest of Spain. With the strong support of separatist parties, the ban passed by a larger margin than expected: 68 to 55, with 9 abstentions. It is to go into effect in 2012." [more inside]

Sometime El Toro he win.

WARNING: What follows is extremely graphic, read the description before clicking.
In the once widely popular and always widely hated sport of bullfighting everything is stacked against the bull. The matador doesn't even enter the ring until the bull is exhausted, badly wounded and near death. Last week however matador Julio Aparicio slipped and the bull took advantage. Aparicio was gored through the throat and the tip of the horn could be seen coming out of his mouth. [more inside]
