Great Moments in Animal Rights Activism

Here's a heartwarming tale of an animal rights activist in Ohio:
COLUMBUS, Ohio - An Ohio woman who compared animal-welfare work to the liberation of World War II concentration camps has been charged with soliciting a hit man to fatally shoot or slit the throat of a random fur-wearer, federal authorities said.
Let it not be said that the woman doesn't love children as well as animals, either:
The affidavit says an FBI employee posing as a possible hit man later began email correspondence with Lowell, and she offered him $730 in jewelry or cash for the killing of a victim of at least 12 years but "preferably 14 years old or older" outside a library near a playground in her hometown.
What a delightful person Meredith Lowell must be! And does she love her family as much as she loves animals? Mais non!
She hoped to be arrested so she could call attention to her beliefs and to get out of the home she shared with her parents and brothers who eat meat and eggs and use fur, leather and wool, investigators said.
Well, she got her wish. She's been arrested and taken out of the house. Let's hope it's for a good long time.

I said it before and I'll say it again. Politics is religion. Any political bent can give way to fanaticism, just like religion. People need to learn to treat one another better, as well as animals and the environment. Personally, with a few exceptions such as yourself, I prefer animals to people, for the most part.
