LA TIMES headline "Amid killer whale controversy, S.D. City Council honors SeaWorld"
It's extremely disappointing to know that you have expressed support for SeaWorld, BUT please realize - while you are officially a lost cause, San Diego is not.
You do not speak for MY city, you speak for SeaWorld.
You speak for their counterparts within the marine "theme park" setting - who force highly intelligent, self aware animals to perform silly tricks but still seek anonymity among words like, "conservation", "research", "education" and "animal welfare".
You speak for the fishermen of Taiji, Japan and the citizens of the Faroe Islands - who violently pillage their own waters for profit but hide behind the transparent veil of "culture" and "tradition".
You speak for all the people, companies and countries - ALL ENTITIES that abuse and exploit any foreign being because you simply can't empathize with them.
