    Boring, Elitzur? We just exceeded our best hit stats yet, and logs don’t rotate until 6:30 tomorrow. What’s going on with PETA and the Presbyterian church are serious issues. Don’t worry. We’ll get to all the issues you mention, I’m sure.

    Oh my goodness – this is turning into one of the most boring blogs on the Jewish-net.
    Isn’t this supposed to be a blog where nobodies like me can say something to somebodies
    who can affect the community? Why don’t you discuss something useful for a change – you can’t find any issues?
    How about the shidduch scene, materialism, assimilation on college campuses, the fact that kids can’t read Hebrew
    when in high-school… hello, anyone there?

    You have a point. I was going to suggest not attacking PETA but sticking to the facts about Rubashkin, but then I saw this on the first site you quote:

    When a grisly killing spree in Vancouver left 15 women dead, PETA tried to purchase full-page ads in local papers suggesting that this carnage was no worse than the killing of animals for food.

    When Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh decided to refrain from eating meat during his last meal, PETAs Bruce Friedrich told reporters: Mr. McVeighs decision to go vegetarian groups him with some of the worlds greatest visionaries, including Albert Schweitzer, Mohandas Gandhi, Leo Tolstoy and Albert Einstein.

    This is why it is important to distinguish between the legitimate critique of the throat pulling by Grandin, and the role of PETA. PETA wants two things: less slaughter, and more money.
