I appreciated very much Tom Gogola’s article about the law firm Jeff Anderson & Associates releasing the names of the Catholic clergymen with sexual-abuse histories (“Roster of Abuse,” Oct. 31). Usually, the names are not mentioned unless an archbishop or cardinal is involved. The sickening switching around of abusers from school to school and parish to parish has kept the names out of the news. Kudos to the law firm and to the Pacific Sun.
What the author fails to mention in his article concerning chickens at McCoy Poultry Services (“Cage Match,” Oct. 24) is the condition of the 10 chickens rescued from the facility. Their injuries were so severe that they had to be euthanized. Instead of holding a conference on how to “prepare and manage activists,” why doesn’t the Sonoma County Farm Bureau do the right thing and tell farmers they have to treat their chickens humanely?
