1/ Hall of Shame 
    February 17, 2011
    Shortly after launching SRUV we read an article in the Mint Hill (NC) Times; it was this article which provided our direction and purpose.  When you've read the article you'll know everything you need to know about pit bull journalism. It's a perfectly distilled example of a journalist responding to the mauling death of a child; he pivots and interviews an advocate of fighting breeds. All other examples of pit advocacy journalism, and there have been hundreds, pale in comparison to this.

2/ Letter to the Animals & Society Institute, Pt 2
    March 5, 2011
    It's really very simple, isn't it?

3/ First They Came - Pastor Niemöller
    March 15, 2011
    On the bastardization of the timeless anti-Nazi statement on the holocaust.

4/ The Future of the APBT
    March 29, 2011
    A pit bull canine homicide of an infant in Kalamazoo, home of the United Kennel Club, and our letter to the UKC.

5/ Letter to the ASI, Pt 4
    April 15, 2011
    Will they never give up?

6/ Good Neighbors
    April 16, 2011
    An unfortunate situation? During our first year SRUV published numerous accounts of attacks on our MVAC, a practice we have largely abandoned. This heartbreaking example is representative.

7/ Unsupported Rhetoric
    April 17, 2011
    Pit bulls and academia

8/ Equal Consideration
    May 1, 2011
    A spin-off of the landmark 2001 Slate magazine debate between Peter Singer and Richard Posner.

9/ Reasonable Doubt
    May 23, 2011
    Pit bulls in a bucolic Midwestern small town, home of Smucker jams.

10/ Natural Consequences
    June 23, 2011
    Examples of the pit bull advocacy juggernaught at work.

11/ The Madding Crowd
    August 18, 2011
    Comments from advocates of fighting breeds following the death of BadRap supporter Darla Napora.

12/ BSL Scholarship
     September 10, 2011
     Are they serious? Do they know what they sound like?

13/ Ax3 Redux
      September 13, 2011
