UPDATE: See Mr. Allen’s very quick and cordial reply below!
I sent the e-mail below to Jeff Allen at KFTK 97.1FM in St. Louis after hearing an ad in support of Proposition B. Feel free to copy and use!
I was so disappointed to hear the Pro-Prop B commercial this morning, but I understand that you are required to play commercials from both sides (wish the folks against Prop B had the money to afford such a commercial).
I don’t know where you come down on the issue, but if you, like many of your commentators, see the truly nefarious aspects of this bill, I believe you have grounds to stop running the commercial.
Calculated by our friend Editor at 24thstate.com, Prop B will likely require the extermination of 86,000+ perfectly healthy and happy dogs. More if the number of licensed breeders substantially drops (as it will).
Surely the station can forgo the requirement for balanced commercial time in a case where the advertiser will cause thousands of animals to be unnecessarily murdered.
Please consider the information at the link below, and I ask you to exercise any options you have to terminate the airing of this ad.

Sadly, some will say that I’m trying to shut-down debate, but the fact is, if some nefarious organization created a bill that was going to require the murder of 86,000+ first-born children — but hid it behind a name of “Happy Fluffy Bunny Act” — I’m sure the government would stop the airing of such ads.
