Pamela Anderson wants to meet with the chief executive officer of Kentucky Fried Chicken’s parent company to discuss what she calls “reasonable, positive changes for KFC’s chickens.”
Anderson, a spokeswoman for PETA, called for a boycott of the fast-food chain a few weeks ago. NAACP President Kweisi Mfume and Paul McCartney also have joined the PETA-led criticism of the company.
“I must admit from the outset that I can’t understand why a company that claims to care about animal welfare would continue to allow chickens to be bred and drugged to be so top-heavy that they can barely walk, to be gathered in a manner that breaks their wings and beaks, and to be scalded to death or drowned in feather-removal tanks,” she wrote in the letter, which PETA released.
We rented the DVD. Don’t waste your time on this film. Even though there are many famous actors involved, it is terrible. We kept waiting for it to “get good” and it never did. I was embarassed that I selected this movie.
Yesterday Ann and I drove down I-85 from Greensboro, NC, to Atlanta. During the trip we passed several large convoys of electric utility vechicles. They had been in the areas hit by hurricane Isabel, helping the local power companies get everyone back online with electricity. I saw trucks from Georgia Power, Pike Electrical, and Sumter Power.
It was inspiring to see the hundreds of vehicles and thousands of people who had been away from home for about two weeks, helping restore electrical service to the millions who were down and out. And this was just a small slice of time on one interstate highway. I imagine that interstate highways in all directions out of Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina had a similar migration. I hope this means that everyone has their power now.
My sister Joyce and her family were without electricity for 9 days. Their cabin on the Tappahannock River lost its pier and sea wall. Isabel was very strong and destructive.
