Fish Memorial Idea Is Just Plain Silly
On October 11th, there was a crash in California that involved a truck hauling hundreds of pounds of fish according to a Fox News story. Now, Dina Kourda, with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, wrote to head of the Irvine, California maintenance department asking for a memorial sign for the fish.
Now, I love America for many reasons, and much of my love for our country comes from the fact that you can believe and promote anything you want. But, this is a crazy request. With all the problems in our country, all the people who have died and are now suffering in the Northeast because of Hurricane Sandy, there are just some people I think need to get a life, and Dina Kourda is one of them.
Dina says the memorial is needed for the fish to “value their lives and feel pain.” Irvine spokesman Craig Reem says there are no plans for any fish memorial. Thank goodness someone has a brain. I understand caring for animals and making sure they are not used and abused, but it’s fish that were just going to get eaten anyway.
Look, believe what you want and think what you want, but every idea that pops in your head does not have to spoken. Dina, please concentrate on something that really matters.
