My friend and comedian Johnny Biscuit has a very funny skit where he talks about which animals we eat vs which animals we make into pets. One line from that monologue goes something like: “People whine about all those dolphins caught in the tuna nets…what about all the tuna in the tuna nets?!” I love Johnny B, but I share that to make a point about this week’s news ...Continue Reading → Share
