Liveblogging the Derby a bit. As someone who spends a fair amount of time with animal behaviorists and other people involved in the human-animal relations area, I must admit, I do watch the Derby usually, but I watch with a bit of sadness too.
Here we are, humans, but animals too, carrying on and watching horses do what WE want them to do. All the while displaying our hats (Jenny McCarthy, Jennifer Tilly, the Queen too) and our cleavage (Tilly and McCarthy again), as well as the absurd "entourages" of brand name products like Michael Jordan, and the blinged NFL stars here to be seen in their shades and expensive suits. Isn't this all a bit unseemly and arrogant of humans?
Update: Just love watching those horses run, but still. Nice job, Street Sense.
