Fish Bowl Ban: You Heard it Here First; Drudge, Weeks Later

By Debbie Schlussel
Remember how we wrote about the fish bowl ban in Rome (on October 28)? Well, weeks later, Drudge and the L.A. Times finally got around to discovering it. But you heard it here, FIRST.
This isn’t the first time that’s happened. We’re sure it won’t be the last.

It’s symptomatic of a fact in denial: The blogworld is at the finish line when the MSM starts. The ‘hive’ around the fishbowled has swarmed and discussed and moved on to other topics like CAIR’s attack on Robert Spencer yesterday.
I never could understand why the sloths never died off. Dead last in ‘their’ genus yet still around bringing up the rear.
From http://www.xenarthra.org/SlothMammal.html
Movement: Charactaristically sluggish and deliberate, with most Sloths only traveling 125 feet (38 meters) or less in an entire day, never leaving the general area of its birth. Due to its natural upside-down clinging position, the Sloth moves very slowly on the ground – usually by dragging itself along by its claws at a snail’s pace of 15 yards per minute – and is easily attacked. Surprisingly, Sloths can swim relatively well, and their coats of fur, used to the tropical storms and rains of South America, allow for swift passage through water. Overall, the top speed of a Sloth is its climbing speed, which is surprisingly very fast in emergency situations.

The Great Animal Rights Abuse: Fish Bowls!

Debbie notices that Italy has banned fish bowls as cruel to animals. It’s part of a “Fish Empathy Project.”

And by the way, And by the way,
