Celebrities, Chimps, Vivisection — The Back From Vacation Blog Post

David Cassuto

Well, I’m back from vacation and I have a few things to report.  First, one of my favorite places: “Milsurp’s Surplus and More” has closed.  I have no idea what they sold there, never having ventured in.  Still, just knowing there was a place that was able to differentiate between surplus and more made me sleep better and wake with a smile.  Now I’ll have to look elsewhere for my reason for being. 

Second, WaPo’s Celebritology column reports that Rob Schneider doesn’t like Al Franken.  

If one has the strength to read on, one finds that Kristin Bauer and Gene Hackman are among those petitioning the National Institutes of Health not to move 150 chimps who have spent their lives being vivisected to another “research” facility in San Antonio.  The chimps are currently living  in a reserve colony in Alamogordo, New Mexico, enjoying a temporary respite from torment.   Governor Bill Richardson of New Mexico also opposes the proposed move, although his focus — at least for purposes of his letter to the director of the NIH — is on the jobs in New Mexico that will be lost if the chimps are moved to Texas.

If it were me opining, I might note that some other reasons include that animal testing is ineffective, cruel and unethical.  But nobody asked me.
