Holy Crap! Has anyone seen this!?!

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/threats_from_the_wild

I'm just starting to get my hopes up about them eventually getting rid of the stupid ban and now they have this story spreading all over Yahoo news? Can they drop it already?? I mean this stuff is put out by AP. Some of these issues need to be addressed, but come one!! I also love how they word their facts. Ie...

More than 770 people have been sickened since 2000 with tularemia, a virulent disease that can be contracted from rabbits, hamsters and other rodents. At least three people have died. The plague, another animal-born disease, has sickened at least 22 Americans and killed at least one.

What they fail to mention is the the plague has effected 22 people over the coarse of like 20-40 years. (And I can't remember the exacty figure but I did a whole research paper on it in college).

Anways...maybe this should go under Rants & Raves but it's PD relevant also??? Any thoughts??

Mankind's true moral test, its fundamental test (which lies deeply buried from view), consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals.
