Earlier today, we told you about Save California, that right-wing and totally off-base group in Sacramento that's spending a ton of time and money pleading with parents to keep their kids locked inside on Harvey Milk Day -- May 22.

The Center for Disease Control warns that more than 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs every year -- and half of those are children. But oddly enough, those high-moral folks in Sacramento who claim to really care about your children obviously don't, or else they would have drummed up radio ads warning parents about Dog Bite Prevention Week, starting May 19.
