PETA Makes Idiotic Attack on Al Gore

PETA needs to think bigger. Why are they worried about the hundreds of animals Al Gore may eat over his lifetime rather than the millions of animals Gore could potentially save from extinction by curbing greenhouse gas emissions:

Activists take Al Gore to task on his diet

When he delivers a lecture on global warming in Denver next month, protesters will display billboards bearing a cartoon image of Mr Gore eating a drumstick and the message: “Too chicken to go vegetarian? Meat is the No 1 cause of global warming”.

The campaign is being organised by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta) and is backed by other animal rights groups.

This may seem strange to PETA, but someone could be both an ally and omnivore. One example is omnivores who don’t buy fur coats or purses.

Pick better battles, PETA, and realize that the world isn’t as black & white as you’re pretending it is.

I’m Big in Minnesota

If anyone in Los Gatos or St. Helena today asked me, “Who the hell are you?” I would have said, “Ed Kohler, duh.” If that didn’t ring a bell, I would have explained to them that they may not have heard of me, but I’m big in Minnesota. For example, The Deets was the Minnesota Blog of the Day on the CityPages Blotter yesterday. And I quote:

Minneapolitan Ed Kohler blogs on Cajun Lucies, brie string cheese, and what’s wrong with newspapers at The Deets.

Damn straight. That’s an interesting snapshot into what The Deets is all about. It also reminds me of a conversation I had with a friend about String Brie way back in almost November. She suggested that snackable brie should come in squeezable tubes like GoGurt. She’s either on something or onto something there.

The hamsters powering The Deets’s servers wished they had a lighter lunch before the insane traffic spike generated by CityPages. They claimed they were a whisker away from calling PETA.
