PETA Continues to Go Over the Deep End

From the AP via Running Scared, PETA has started a little thing called the Fish Empathy Project. Apparently, they are pushing the argument that that "fish ... are intelligent, sensitive animals no more deserving of being eaten than a pet dog or cat." According to Bruce Friedrich, PETA's director of vegan outreach:
"No one would ever put a hook through a dog's or cat's mouth. Once people start to understand that fish, although they come in different packaging, are just as intelligent, they'll stop eating them."
Uh, yeah. Be certain to check the comments and extra links Jazz posted at Running Scared. And I highly suggest you read the story of how Jazz was attacked by PETA.
