“The book American Gods wishes it was.” --Despina Durand

As part of the research of my bullfighting novel, in Chicanonautica at La Bloga, I'm asking Latinos what they think about bullfighting – though if anybody else has anything to add, come on down!

Unfortunately, most of the time when I bring up the subject, I get reactions like this:

Did you know that bloodless Portuguese bullfighting is legal in California? Here's how they do it in Thornton, to honor Our Lady of Fatima:

They also do Spanish-style bloodless bullfighting in South Texas:

And in Las Vegas:

Even though the bulls are not killed in the ring in bloodless bullfighting, after they get too smart and dangerous they are taken behind closed doors and slaughtered.

Like I've said, civilization is an unnatural act.
