The owner of a local zoo cries 'foul" - claiming that the folks from PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) are responsible for the downturn in attendance. Evidently PETA has been complaining for years that the zoo abused their animals. The question of whether they did abuse the animals or not is not nearly as important as..."Why are we still putting animals in zoos?"
Kudos to John Lewis who was one of the U.S. Representatives who participated in a sit-down protest in an effort to force the government to pass gun control legislation. Back in the '60s, Mr. Lewis was one of the "Big Six" - brave souls who marched with Dr. Martin Luther King, faced-down the southern racists, their police, their dogs, and their water hoses.
