Re: Fw: (US) PETA: People Enabling Terrorist Atrocities
- Coporations generally have the attitude that any news that they
themselve don't generate is bad news.
Times 'they are a changin'.
The Covance lawsuit is going to be the first of many. Just wait. I
hope that PETA has a lot of lawyers willing to do years of Pro Bono
work because they are getting ready to get taken to school and taught
what legal harrassment really means.
Fun fun fun...
I bet Newkirk is so mad she could eat raw meat right now..
