Dastardly Deeds Demonstrative of Depravity

The vividly gruesome expose graphically depicting brutalities endemic to cockfighting was actually a poignant profile of humanity's depravity ["Blood Sport," by Tori Marlan, June 14]. Anthropocentric proponents of the atrocity exhibition are emblematic of impoverished mentalities augmented by severed consciences. Their callous contempt for chickens and other birds is indicative of archaic imbecility. Ultimately, the enlightened masses will galvanize and ostracize these pariahs as subversive misfits unbecoming to civility.
