Saving Sochi’s Strays


Finally, a feel good story from the Olympics.

The Washington Post has an excellent story today on the volunteers smuggling stray dogs out of the Sochi Olympics before they can be killed by government contractors.

Far worse then the corruption and graft, the unfinished hotels, faulty plumbing and other problems that often come with major international sporting events such as the Olympics or the World Cup, are countries/cities desperate attempts to present a false facade. The poor, the homeless, the strays- animals and human likes are often forced out or worse to present a false picture of happiness and prosperity to the world.

About drugsandotherthings

I am a criminal. Because I have used cannabis and psychedelics extensively. I have tried many other drugs, but never cared for the uppers, downers, or dissociatives. I love craft beer, and absinthe, but don't care much for alcohols effects- which quite frankly, are boring and dangerous. Science is my religion. I am in my 40's, and have travelled extensively. And often forced myself outside of my confort zone. I am employed, a respected member of my communtiy, an animal lover, an environmentalist, a political junkie, and the realities I have experienced continue to push me further to the left of the political spectrum.
