Kudos to the professor of nutrition whose letter in Everybody's Column exposed the bogus claims expressed on the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals billboard on Route 33.
An enlightening article on the Southern Poverty Law Center's Web site details how PETA moves in the same circles as Earth First! and the Animal Liberation Front -- eco-terrorist groups that believe it is appropriate to bomb and even murder humans in the name of animal rights.
As the average person laughs with growing frequency at PETA's nutty ideology -- it lobbies to have the names of such towns as "Beaver Kill" changed -- the group has to take more extreme measures to get its radical agenda across. Shame on the agency that rented PETA the billboard space that insults the intelligence of local motorists, and manipulates the minds our young people.
