"It's the first time since Japanese Internment that we've imprisoned children" -- from a post
displaying a letter
written by a 9 year old Canadian.
Canada's seal hunt
started yesterday and though I wondered if the numbers on the Protect Seals
site were accurate, this somewhat gory and disturbing slideshow
at Yahoo/AP news seems to support the high numbers of slaughter. There doesn't seem to be much you can do to stop seal clubbing in 2005, just boycotting Canadian seafood and calling congressfolks
. Shame to see up to 300k seals killed for some fur coats -- seems so last century.
Now this is something you don't see everyday. There's this small Canadian airline
that has an interesting legal disclaimer
you see right before you start ordering a ticket. Scroll down to the paragraph that starts 'PERSONS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS' which includes some compassionate nuggets like 'The WestJet® Web Site is not designed for use by persons with special needs.' What a warm, caring bunch of folks, eh?
