It's considered "sick" and "Cruel" Only because ppl like to deny the idea of "normal" ppl being "uncivilized" and doing "uncivilized" things. For some reason, it all seems masochistic. Do ppl enjoy the shame of being reminded that deep down inside, they're really not that civilized? As far as Vick goes.......He's just another guy that ppl point fingers at to make themselves feel better. "As if I'd be that cruel and sick." Uh, yes you can. especially when you get all self righteous and judgemental.
