“I am honored to lend my name and support to the work that Liz Marshall is doing in her film THE GHOSTS IN OUR MACHINE. The animals and mammals of our planet have been fighting a losing battle with us humans for far too long. They are happy to share this planet with us. And give their love and affection freely. We need to be more respectful of these magnificent creatures. And do what we can to ensure their survival for generations to come. I have rescued several dogs from shelters and always try to support companies that don’t test on animals. I only hope that THE GHOSTS IN OUR MACHINE can change the way people treat animals the way “Food, Inc.” changed the way people eat.”
