After a period of reflection and grief over the loss of my friend, Cate, I am motivated by Cate's constant concerns for animal welfare and my own commitment to speak out where I can. This post in New York Times (The T Edwards' Fantasy Gift Guide) is way over the line. Humor at the expense of killing animals is completely unexceptable and, to be honest New York Times, juvenile and declass. Witness:
Haute Window Dressing
How many minks will be killed for this pathetic "look at me" travesty. Is that what it takes for you, mink drapes guy, to feel like a big deal? To impress your friends? Yourself? better you invest that $52,000 in therapy as soon as possible.
After years of sitting on the sidelines, for which I apologize, I'm back. Bring it.
(note: It's hard for me to look tough. Boyish good looks. But, remember when your mother said "it's the quiet ones you have to watch"? Yeah, it's like that.)
