I've previously blogged about the animal-lover side of my personality, and it's going to come out here again: http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/wireStory?id=3882449.
WHY, why, why do the Japanese need to resume hunting Humpback Whales? Are they seriously trying to sell the world on the idea that their culture will wither away and die if they don't kill these animals? Sorry, but that won't fly with me, nor should it with anyone else. It's a barbaric move on their part, and hopefully they will be condemned by the world community for it.
