From the Editorial Board of the Albany, N.Y. Times Union:
"... If money is the ultimate guide, the Legislature’s latest rematch in the fight to lift the ban on mixed martial arts might be expanded.
So why not legalize, oh, bullfighting? In Mexico, after all, about 1 million jobs are said to be at least indirectly linked to that repulsive sport. In Spain, some 65 million people a year attend bullfights. Think of the money they’re spending, in bullrings and other venues.
Or what about bringing back an entertainment with a history in Albany: cockfighting? If this is all about money, you can’t argue the fact that there used to be a lot of cash changing hands when those bouts were legal. ... "
