People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) have done very good work over many years. Now they're in grave danger of giving even cosmetics-free, earnest-looking, earringed, pony-tailed bunny-huggers a bad name. They've taken President Barack Obama to task for (successfully - good for him!) swatting a fly during an interview with CNBC at the White House. The idiots are sending the Prez a 'humane' bug catcher (true) so he can in future (me being facetious) tell the interviewing anchor person to hold while he humanely traps said fly and then (their words) 'releases it outside'. I think this would embarrass even a Buddhist. And just when did a disease-carrying house fly become an 'animal'? Someone's clearly flunked entomology 101. If you needed any further evidence of incipient planet-wide insanity, look no further. Dear grief! Read the online story here or click on the article below to open in a new window.
