real swords! Looked like fun to me. But the Irish Council Against Blood Sports wants to close down Las Ventas. Too many folks having fun, enjoying life, I guess.
We don't have a Plaza de Toros here in not-very-mediterranean Nebraska, but we do have the rodeo! I'd like to see some Irish Council on anything get our cowboys to give up watching the bull riders. But they probably won't because most of the blood in our State Blood Sport is shed by the human participants. Perhaps these misguided Irish cranks are really animal rights kooks. If I thought they were a real threat, I'd check them out. See who is funding their creepy web site.
