ON CURRICULUM TEACHES CRUELTY

Ernest Hemingway.. in his next life perhaps became an antibullfight
activist in Mexico, Spain or Portugal, if God was merciful. If not, perhaps he became a bull
in the ring. Hemingway unrequited in love
Took his anger out
On African mammals
He serially murdered
And in popularizing
The barbarism of
Bullfights.

"To me heaven would be a big bull ring with me holding two barrera seats and a trout stream outside that no one else was allowed to fish in and two lovely houses in the town; "
(Hemingway's biography spoke of his unrequited love

MURDER MYSTERY WITH ANIMAL RIGHTS THEME

C J Box's Blood Trail is now available in
an audio version..

Box has written a murder mystery with
an anti hunting activist on one side and Wyoming's hunter dominated government
on the other. In between them is Joe Pickett, himself someone who
frequently breaks jaws and who murders in the story.

Recorded Books' narrator David Chandler
portrays the animal rights leader in the
book more negatively than his character
was written.

Recorded Books LLC which has made the audio
version also glorifies foxhunting
with the publishing of Rita Mae Brown,
Charlottesville promoter of the blood
sport referred to by Oscar Wilde as
'the unspeakable in full pursuit of
the inedible'.

VIVISECTORS HAVE OPENED MANY PANDORA'S BOXES
.. SOME DELIBERATEY

such as the 'weaponized anthrax research'
and some accidentally such as the Fort
Collins Colorado government research
station's creation of Mad Deer and Mad Elk.
