california fur legislation
There's good news out of California for the discriminating furry.

And who says the AP is dull?

Clothes that are made with animal fur would need special labels in California under legislation adopted Monday by the State Assembly. Lawmakers voted 46 to 7 to close a loophole in federal law that allows many fur products to go unlabeled. Current law requires labels only for garments that have $150 or more worth of animal fur. The bill now goes to the State Senate.

"I think there is an expectation that if clothing isn’t labeled as real fur it must be fake, but this isn’t always the case,” Fiona Ma, the author of the bill, said in a statement after the vote. ”People have a right to know if they are buying raccoon, dog or a polyester blend.”


The Lazy Paperboy

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.

I thought they were called furbies. Is that the same as furries?

You may need to speak with your Assemblyman about this, WC.
