awesome! animal rights activists win!

Governor reverses stand on shelters, reinstates waiting period

As part of his budget proposal that was first drafted in December, the governor had asked the Legislature to repeal a 1998 law that requires the shelters to hold animals up to six days before destroying them. The governor wanted to save money bu cutting the waiting period in half ... But after a nationwide storm of protest, the governor hastily organized a press conference outside his Capitol office and told reporters of his error.

yesss! at least the man has some sense and knows when to listen to the people unlike some other jerk who just doesn't know when to quit.
