Goodbye Chris Garnett, hello

The youth outreach coordinator for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), Chris Garnett, has legally changed his name to Those wacky extremists!

The former Dover Plains, New York, resident and current Street Team coordinator of peta2—PETA's youth division [aka "petmol" -- LW] —has the official state papers and driver's license to prove it... Under's watchful eye, peta2's Street Team has grown to more than 100,000 dedicated young activists across the country who will mobilize in defense of animals at a moment's notice... joins the growing ranks of consumers, celebrities, and scholars—including actor Pamela Anderson, The Rev. Al Sharpton, Sir Paul McCartney, and His Holiness the Dalai Lama—who are helping out in PETA's campaign to force KFC to end its abusive treatment of chickens.

Previously: Lisa Franzetta bares all for the cause.


Really, the treatment of most food animals is pretty bad -- chickens included and especially. In a real sense this is what is (also) extreme. This is why people find it objectionable -- so objectionable they feel compelled to do something about. Now, how changing one's name will help is an open question...

It's all bad karma. Man.

This is the kind of cause that media and other image-preening leftists need; the kind where the grateful 'beneficiaries' cannot talk back in any circumstance.
