Published in METRO (, August 16, 2006:

Regarding 'What's your sign' (August 9): Your article about home decorating states, "Nothing screams royalty like lizard skin." Actually, using lizard skin as a decoration screams a lot of things - such as animal cruelty, human decedence, selfishness - in fact, it just screams, period. To hear the screams of animals whose 'decorative' skin is literally ripped off their backs - frequently while still alive - visit

You wouldn't like to have your skin stolen from you. Animals aren't fabric; do the decent thing and just say no to clothing and decorations made of animals.
