Editor's Message

Next week, two important events will occur. First, on Thursday, our country will celebrate Thanksgiving. This year as everyone sits down with family and friends for their annual Thanksgiving feast I hope that we invite compassion to our table. Every year with weak government regulations over 40 million turkeys are slaughtered in the United States. Prior to a cruel death the birds are crowded into factory farms with less than three square feet of space. Disease, extreme sufferings, along with filthy conditions create a living hell for these birds.

Please reconsider eating meat this year, and ending fall traditions that causes so much pain for our animal friends. In our Sunday, November 21st, issue, we will be bringing you a complete thanksgiving menu that is cruelty free. This is the second year we have done this, and we feel that it is better to sit down with family and friends, offering a prayer of thanks, when there isn't the remains of a tortured and murdered body posing as the centerpiece of the table.

The other important even this coming week is the day after Thanksgiving which is the annual Fur-Free Friday. Each year concerned citizens make their voices heard in protest of the killing of animals for fashion and vanity. We will dedicate our November 24th issue to the subject of Fur.

In today's issue, we will bring you not only information on turkeys, but also on upcoming Fur-Free Friday events that you can take part in. Let's support our furred and feathered friends.
