I know this has nothing to do with sex education but seriously, if anyone can donate that’d be great.
Badass Dad of the Day: Karl Kesel, a writer and inker for DC Comics, is selling a trove of old comics that he’s been collecting and preserving since childhood.
What for? The Kesels recently adopted a baby with heroin-addicted birth parents, and need money to pay for the child’s rehabilitation costs.
Kesel has found some solace in the sale:I don’t necessarily feel like I’m putting away childish things. I may be putting away my childish things. But I’m embracing Isaac’s.
I think I’m getting another childhood here.
What is a trigger?

Ontario has no laws controlling aquariums and zoos, or protecting the animals inside. Without those laws no one will be able to save the animals of Marineland.
I’ve seen animals living in filthy water, blind seals, and dolphins with their skin falling off. After 12 years as Marineland’s top trainer, I had to quit my job so I could speak out and save these animals from the extreme neglect I witnessed at Marineland. Shortly after I left, this continued with the death of a baby beluga forced into a tank she didn’t belong in.
But there is one barrier to saving these animals. There are no laws controlling zoos or aquariums in Ontario. The SPCA is welcome to investigate, but without these laws no one can do anything to stop this neglect.
That’s why I started a petition on Change.org demanding Premier Dalton McGuinty establish a law protecting animals at aquariums and zoos.
This isn’t the first time animal neglect has been exposed at Marineland. Many trainers have quit before me. After each scandal, groups have called for the Government to act, but no progress is ever made. This time, however, the public outrage is louder than ever, and since Premier McGuinty only has a minority government he is much more likely to act.
For the animals,
Phil Demers, ex Marineland trainer
