Pit bulls in Ohio will no longer be labeled as "vicious" dogs under a bill that's been signed into law by Gov. John Kasich.
The governor on Tuesday signed the bill that changes a law defining a vicious dog as one that has seriously hurt or killed a person, killed another dog or is among those commonly known as pit bulls. The new measure removes the reference to pit bulls from the definition and requires evidence to prove pit bulls are actually vicious.
It also specifies that the label does not include a police dog that has injured a person or has killed another dog.
Poor Will's Almanack for the second week of Early Spring
The other day, someone asked me, "What is the point of keeping track of things like flowers and birds?"
And I answered that - without my notes - I would literally feel lost in space.
I tried to explain that for me place and time do not exist outside of personal observations and feelings. I wake up in my familiar bed, see the same trees, the same roads, the same family. I put on familiar clothes, listen to familiar sounds, recall familiar memories. I therefore know where I am and who I am.
