After watching continuous acts of police abuse and brutality from coast-to-coast, perhaps the real question is, have we reached a point where federal authorities need to step in?
An increasing number of people see zoos themselves as inherently problematic, and argue that even the best-funded, most conservation-minded institutions in which animals are kept on display should go the way of the dodo.
After a recent public talk, I shocked the crowd by admitting that the Levi's jeans I was wearing that day "hadn't seen the inside of a washing machine." Now, everywhere I go, the first thing people say to me is "Oh, you're the guy who never washes his jeans!"
