Don’t Dis The Chick

Syndicated radio show host Harry Shearer, bowing to pressure from the wacky chicken-rights folks at United Poultry Concerns over "unthinking" comments he made concerning chicken processing, declared yesterday "National Respect the Chicken Day." We offer our full support. However you like to eat it -- fried, barbequed, baked, or broiled -- we respect chicken as a menu choice.

"No matter how the food was prepared -- blackened, barbecued, grilled or pan-fried -- red meat didn't increase the risk and white meat actually seemed to offer protection against breast cancer," said Dr. Ralph Delfino, who co-led the research team.

Rewarding Terrorism?

Eco-terrorists at the Animal Liberation Front have confessed to a rash of arsons, including the firebombing of a meat plant, in the San Francisco Bay area in recent months. The Foundation for Biomedical Research quotes ALF spokesperson David Barbarash as saying, "Whoever these ALF activists are, they're doing a damn fine job of inflicting economic damages to these companies, and they should be rewarded for their courage and bravery!"

("Annual 'Meatout' can be springboard for vegetarian diet," The Virginian-Pilot, 3/15/00.)
