Just Darts Since 2009

The pets of California can breathe a sigh of relief now. A bill requiring that every dog and cat in the state be neutered has been defeated.
I’m only posting this because it reminds me of the late, lamented “Arrested Development.”
In one episode, Michael Bluth is talking to his sister, Lindsay Bluth (a dilettante environmentalist):
Lindsay: I’ve always been very passionate about nature. Perhaps you remember Neuterfest?
Michael: Oh, I’ll never forget your wedding.
Later, Michael needs her help in getting an enviro-nut out of a tree on a property he wants to clear for development:
Michael: Listen, after we get that lot cleared, we’re going to have enough money for you to neuter thousands of animals. You can make dogs and cats a complete thing of the past. No more dogs and cats.
(Lindsay smiles brightly.)
You can’t satirize Californians. Well you can, but then they just take it as a challenge.
