Props to PeTA

January 20, 2009

This is not something I will do often. As much of an advocate for animal rights as I may be, I disagree with a lot of the stances and tactics of the organization known as PeTA.

I was talking to a few friends over the weekend, and we concluded that PeTA would respond to the Miracle on the Hudson by claiming that modern air travel is cruel and insensitive to the needs of migratory birds.

We expected pictures of charred and bloodied goose remains to be plastered all over the Web site, and for Hero, Captain “Sully” Sullivan, to be lambasted as an animal killing monster.

Kudos to PeTA for recognizing the bigger picture here, and, so far, not putting anything like that up on your site.
