Pigs: I Owe You an Apology

To the pigs of the world, I am sorry.

Recent news coverage of the H1N1 virus has made me realize just how horrible and insensitive a person I am. I referred to H1N1 flu as swine flu and I shall never forgive myself. To insult pigs in this way goes against everything I believe.

Pigs have made incredible contributions and great strides since the days of Porky Pig, Arnold of Green Acres, and the movie Porky's. We need to mobilize, organize, and actionize against this sort of crass discrimination against pigs. Our society is better than that.
