Ironic timing, this:
AUGUSTA – Today at 2:00 p.m., Governor LePage will travel to
Scarborough to tour Phantom Fireworks, a national consumer fireworks company
with over 1,200 locations nationwide. Accompanying the Governor will be State
Fire Marshal Joe Thomas, who will discuss fireworks safety for the coming
Independence Day holiday.
I'm no fan of animal cruelty. Which is why I hate PETA. They're unduly cruel and ridiculous to their fellow animals (the human kind) in the name of a good and admirable cause.
Today, for example, a group of PETA activists will get naked (nearly - in their underwear) in Monument Square, to make the point that they'd rather be naked than wear fur.
