"The Cafferty File": Call God 'Allah'?
.Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick plans to plead guilty in a dogfighting case. What's the appropriate punishment?
Mr. Vick (and I use that term loosely) should receive 10 years in prison (which he won't get) and be stripped of all his assets to be used to increase the enforcement and public education of animal abuse laws. What he did is despicable and I'm sick and tired of hearing news anchors talk about how "unfortunate" this is for "Mr. Vick". -Ben, Boise, Idaho
Vick should spend 30 minutes in a pit with six pit bulls that hate people. He enjoys inflicting pain on helpless creatures so much that he should really enjoy experiencing it. -Franklin, Flowery Branch, Georgia
He should have to spend time in Sheriff Joe Arpaio's jail in Arizona in the summertime. What a pig! Thank you so much for your honest, heartfelt report. It's about time someone said what we are all thinking! -Monique, British Columbia
There is no punishment severe enough for what Michael Vick has done, nor is there a punishment severe enough for anyone who does things like this to these defenseless animals. None. -Melissa, Bernville, Pennsylvania
My dogs, bigger than most of the Falcons, demand that he be tossed from the world of pro sports... and while he is in prison, (probably for too short a time) he gets to feed the warden's dog. -Joe, Killingworth, ConnecticutThe BBC dropped a suicide bomb plotline from one of its programs to avoid offending Muslims. Does that make sense?
It probably makes "sense" to the Brits, but in my opinion they are being intimidated by the so-called Muslim "mind control". I am actually surprised the BBC or whoever would allow such a thing. When truth bows to someone else's "feelings", it is regrettable. Bad idea. -Powell, Deckerville, Massachusetts
Seriously what more can happen in this world? Now I guess we need to cut whites out of 19th century movies because they depict slavery and it is offensive, or cut the Japanese out of World War 2 movies. -Cody
The BBC has long ago lost any semblance of objectivity, particularly as regards the fundamentalist Muslim community. A constant disparagement of Israel, coupled with an approach that usually extols the virtues of radical Muslims, has made the BBC a laughingstock of serious journalism. -Richard, Los Angeles, California
If they did not want to offend Muslims, they should never have invaded Iraq with us. -Scott, Washington
