I had been putting off doing one of my least favorite things to do in life, and that is to go to the Whino's blog. I really hate seeing his face on my computer. But one has to do what one has to do and I did.
Glad I did because it is pitiful and that makes me very happy. His list of his "achievements" for 2009 are somewhat lower, I bet, than he expected since he thinks we will be "No Kill" shortly. About the only thing he did was put out another propaganda book and that certainly won't be a great legacy to leave the world.
He is still supporting Doug Rae, can you believe that? I felt certain he would turn tail on Rae like he has been known to do on others like Tara Darby. Oh, Tara was the greatest - until he caught wind of possible cruelty charges. Then he turned like a pit bull on a nutter and went for the throat. Nice guy, huh? Especially since Tara was his hand picked choice for the position. It was actually Rae who brought the Philly shelter down because the things wrong there were directly under his control, not Tara's. Yeah, the Whino is again whining about a corrupt city council, in Indy, blah, blah, blah. Man, does his bullshit get old.
So, he has very little to "brag" about now, very little. The "successes" get fewer and fewer every year. And he wasn't really making a lot of predictions for the future of "No Kill". I wonder if he is getting the message a little, that his program is not having the acceptance he expected. I would say he was expecting to be the second coming of Richard Avanzino by now. Don't get me talking about the Maddie's Fund here and how Avanzino is wasting the opportunity to truly help with his insistance to only fund those programs he thinks will be successful. Avanzino doesn't put money into the really hard core areas because he only is concerned with collecting success. The Whino would love nothing more than to boot Avanzino out and control all that money. He should stick with being a Wayne Pacelle wannabe instead and go for the looks, not the money.
So I predict that it pretty much is the beginning of the end for "No Kill", no one wants the Whino any more. If he were as great as he thinks he is, he would be doing seminars everyday. Instead he might have one only on occasion now. Looks like the Whino is winding down and it couldn't happen to a nicer guy. He's caused enough suffering, enough contention in the humane community, enough bullshit and needs to go. The sooner, the better. Hope to say in 2011 that no ones knows his whereabouts. I know where I would like to send him.
