What’s Behind Spike in Gulf Coast Dolphin Attacks?

Exposing the Big Game

The protagonist in Nobel Peace Prize laureate and author Isaac Bashevis Singer’s book, The Letter Writer, stated, “In relation to animals, all people are Nazis.”

Ah, the Nazis; who can forget them? They were those goose-stepping narcissists who had the arrogant audacity to think themselves superior to all other races. Hell, “Nazi” even sounds like a derivative of the word “narcissism.” Thank God that kind of grandiosity is a thing of the past.

Or is it…

Not if you, like Isaac Singer, consider the attitudes human beings have toward their fellow animals. When you allow yourself even for a moment to ponder the plight of non-humans at the hands of man and connect the dots, you’re sure to come to the logical conclusion that: in relation to animals, all people are Narcissists.

Although Galileo and Copernicus have long since put to rest the notion of Earth as the center of…

Thoughts on Easter Sunday

PINK-BRIEFCASE

100_0389

  1. Please, Lord have mercy, for all the treasures in this world and the next, please stop making us sing-a-long to the Hallelujah Chorus at the end of service.  It is terrible.  No one can sing it — not even your best choir members — and it goes on FOREVER.  Trust me, I’m an expert on these things.
  2. When I have a baby I am going to dress it in a Superman costume on Easter Sunday.  Because seriously, that was awesome.  Way to go, America.  You never cease to amaze me.
  3. I think I’m going to go shopping for my own striped tights to wear with a coordinating polka-dot dress.  Kids are styling these days.
  4. Reese’s has these new peanut butter eggs that are INCREDIBLE.  Make time tomorrow morning to purchase every single remaining peanut butter egg (of any size, really, but the small ones are surprisingly wonderful) on clearance at…

Five [Awesome] Things I Read This Week, 03.31.2013

PINK-BRIEFCASE

Five Awesome Things I Read This Week copyWe’re late to the party this week and I almost didn’t post, but there are a few pieces I just couldn’t not share with you today.  Enjoy!

A Modest Proposal for More Back-Stabbing in Pre-School, Carina Chocano for The New York Times:

“[I]n my attempt to raise a conscious, creative and socially and environmentally responsible child while lacking the means to also finance her conscious, creative and environmentally and socially responsible lifestyle forever, I’d accidentally gone and raised a hothouse serf. Oops. . . . And so I began to wonder: Are we feeding our children a bunch of dangerous illusions about fairness and hard work and level playing fields? Are ideals a luxury only the rich can afford? (Tuition certainly is.) As seduced as I was by the good intentions on display, I couldn’t shake the feeling that there was something not quite fair about all this —…

Kacey Musgraves Uses Humor To Top The Country Charts

K-FROG 95.1 FM and 92.9 FM - New Country

Justin Timberlake might have nearly broken a million in album sales this past week, but Kacey Musgraves got herself to the top of the charts, too. The country singer sold 43,000 copies of her album Same Trailer Different Park during its debut week, which was enough to earn the number one spot on the Top Country Albums chart.

The ACM Female Vocalist of the Year nominee told Radio.com she hopes fans relate to the small-town themes on her album and the funny stories she tells about the people who live there.

“I don’t ever want to be taken too seriously,” she said. “I love a song that makes people think, but I love to laugh, too…if there can be a sarcastic tongue and cheek point in it then I love that.”

That’s one of Musgraves’ favorite parts of her first single, “Merry Go ‘Round,”…

Petition to Stop the British Columbia Wolf Hunt!

Exposing the Big Game

Stop the British Columbia Wolf Hunt!

 Petition Background (Preamble):
Wolves are being indiscriminately killed in British Columbia, and under the pretext of “Wildlife Management”!

So-called “conservationists” are killing wolves, even machine-gunning entire packs from helicopters, based on the claim that they are reducing caribou herds; however, loss of habitat is a far more probable cause. Natural ecosystems are self regulating and wolves play a vital role in them.

There is also an increase in the slaughter of wolves to protect livestock on private and public land with insufficient attention to alternative measures such as improved farming practices and animal husbandry.

Wolves are killed for sport and their body parts used as trophies; this is an abhorrent activity and wasteful use of wildlife.

Wolves deserve wilderness habitat in which to live a natural pack life, unmolested.

Humans are the…
