I'm afraid that truth and sound science, while good to have, does not guarantee success. Case in point: the evolution vs. intelligent design debate.

Fortunately, truth and sound science has temporarily thrown a monkey wrench into the HSUS banning agenda. However, we still have to change the public's perception that reptiles are dangerous and that reptile owners are irresponsible, because truth and sound science does not always translate into votes.

To win over the general public, we should capitalize more on news stories such as this:
