mourning

Writer's Block: Pet central

Some animal rights activists are fighting to replace the term 'owner' with 'guardian' to convey a more balanced relationship between a person and her or his pet. Do you agree or disagree with the importance of this mission?
I understand wanting people to be compassionate and humane in regard to animals, but I think this goes too far. I also think animals are very tasty, though I do wish the government would require factory farms to either go away or become clean, humane places for animals to live. The animals are going to die for our food, we ought to show our appreciation by giving them a good life.
