In Memoriam: Rep. C.W. Bill Young

Rep. C.W. Bill Young

The ASPCA is saddened by the loss of one of Congress’ most dedicated animal welfare advocates: Representative C.W. Bill Young (FL-13). As the longest serving Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives, Rep. Young led a career filled with compassionate actions for animals.

Rep. Young was well known for his dedication in the fight to stop the brutal practice of horse slaughter. In addition to his consistent support of authorizing legislation, like the SAFE Act, to ban horse slaughter, Rep. Young was also a staunch ally to horses on the House Appropriations Committee. In June of this year, Rep. Young cosponsored an amendment to the Agriculture Appropriations bill for 2014 that would prevent federal dollars from being spent on horse meat inspections, language that would keep horse slaughter plants from reopening in the United States. Thanks to his leadership, the amendment was swiftly adopted into the FY 14 Agriculture Appropriations bill by the committee.

Rep. Young, a member of the Congressional Animal Protection Caucus, advocated for many animal welfare issues during his 42-years of service in Congress. A longtime leader on legislation to combat puppy mills, Rep. Young joined as an original cosponsor of the PUPS Act this Congress, legislation that would close loopholes in the existing law and improve conditions for dogs in commercial breeding establishments.

In addition to his leadership on these key efforts, Rep. Young supported many other animal welfare initiatives over the course of his career, including legislation to combat animal fighting, stop horse soring, and protect America’s wild horses.

The ASPCA is grateful to Rep. Young for his many years of compassionate service in Congress, and remembers him for standing up in defense of our nation’s animals. His memory and legacy will long be cherished.

So I was invited to make castles with a puzzles wooden blocks. This puzzle is an adult mindbender that Chait, with the fiendish competitiveness of the professional sportsperson he is, assembled in record time. All the blocks must fit to form a cube. Unaware of how spookily closely my daughter watched daddys every move, we were astonished to find her assembling the puzzle to absolute perfection. At age two-and-a-half. I must mention here, at the risk of appearing the family dodo, that I cannot yet assemble it correctly (to my malevolent satisfaction, neither can most people I know).

The recently published statistics on unemployment make it more and more obvious that Labour's policy of uncontrolled, unlimited uncounted mass immigration has also worsened the economic problems caused by its policy of massive spending and borrowing.
