Heaven, as Belinda Carlisle knows, is not always a place on earth, but the girl group goddess is determined to bring its halo down a notch.
Foie gras fanciers, not content just to bathe their arteries in bird fat, are adding insult to injury by trotting out a laundry list of misconceptions, inaccuracies and outright lies about the foie gras industry.
Iguana: It tastes "just like chicken."
Since retiring from the NBA, John Salley has only gotten betta. He's just launched target BettaLifechallenge, an inspiring, energizing jumpstart into ...
I interviewed author Mark Hawthorne, a passionate advocate for the compassionate treatment of animals as living beings. Hawthorne believes that most people would choose to avoid being needlessly cruel to animals, and he has written a book so that the average person can be well informed about these issues.
Macy's hosted a SeaWorld float again this year, perhaps thinking it would get a different result. It didn't. PETA supporters, including young Rose, again scaled the barriers at Thursday's parade and displayed posters proclaiming, "SeaWorld Hurts Orcas."
Although the meat industry would like us to believe that we can have our turkey breasts and bacon everything with a clear conscience, that's a bigger load of manure than even a factory farm generates. It's a gimmick. The only 100 percent "humane" meat is no meat at all.
It's past time for PETA to explain what happened to Wilbur Cerate's dog. Because until we know more, all we can say about this terrible story is that a family is grieving, and some professionally sinister mustache-twirlers working for the meat industry have that much more ammunition in their war against animals.
PETA reportedly stole a family's pet chihuahua from their porch, and killed it. You heard that right. Yes, we're talking about that PETA: People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. The theft was caught on video, and has been reported by WAVY.com, local media in Accomack County, Virginia.
While KFC and Komen earn millions selling pink buckets of fried chicken and Boar's Head pink-wraps its meats, women could do more to combat breast cancer by convincing their friends and family members to say no to pink-beribboned animal products and yes to the produce aisle.
You might be surprised to find that even little dives in small cities are becoming increasingly vegan-friendly.
Joan Rivers had a barbed tongue but she also had a soft spot for animals. Despite her penchant for wearing fur, Joan always appreciated PETA's efforts.
After 10 months of filming New York's Greatest Living Icons, the gentle carriage horses, those who love them... and those who hate them, I can say, without equivocation, there is no abuse, no cruelty of any kind, only love...and lots of carrots.
There's nothing wrong with a group of people standing against torture and abuse -- there's nothing wrong with lobbying for humane alternatives -- there's nothing wrong with strongly, perhaps loudly advocating on behalf of the defenseless animals who exist at the receiving end of our collective selfishness and gluttony.
Ag-gag laws violate the will of the American people, and they contradict American values as enshrined in our Constitution. Animal agriculture should be working to eliminate cruelty to animals, not the investigations that expose it.
Great literature can inspire. Let Ulysses inspire you to go meatless. Celebrate Bloomsday with beer, by all means, but also with "weggebobbles and fruit," as Bloom puts it. "It's healthier." As his wife Molly puts it at the novel's orgasmic conclusion, yes.
