Bill introduced to stop swan slaughter

From Sheepshead Bites:

Queens State Senator Tony Avella has introduced a bill that would establish a two-year moratorium on the state Department of Environmental Conservation’s plan to eliminate 2,200 mute swans – the same scenic species that populates Sheepshead Bay’s marina. Local Assemblyman Steven Cymbrowitz announced today that he will follow suit with an Assembly version, having previously spoken out on the issue.

The Senate bill has been referred to the Senate’s environmental conservation committee.

Hey Mr. A Better NYC -

I'm sure you're a man.

The operative word is unborn. And HELL YES - the earth is way too overpopulated! More swans, less human spawn! Take a trip to Main Street.

I once say a mug that read "If men could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament."

Mine says "Ban viagra, not abortions!"
