Re: PETA, was insect control


It's unfortunate that PETA has not disavowed a connection with the Animal
Liberation Front and other groups that give them such a bad name. And
there's a difference between kindness to animals, and the belief that
animals have rights that supercede those of humans (though I believe that in
some cases that may be true, also).

 From PETA's website: "Animal rights means that animals are not ours to use
for food, clothing, entertainment, or experimentation. Animal welfare allows
these uses as long as "humane" guidelines are followed."

neighbor, and given her a dose of her own medicine)
