The nation's most outspoken and flamboyant animal rights group has announced that it is creating a new division to combat what it describe as "animal-on-animal" violence.
Adorned with lettuce bras, spokeswomen for the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals recently told the press that they need to expand their agenda.
"We recently sat down for our monthly 'Talk and Tofurkey' gathering to discuss how we could better help serve the cause of animal rights," spoke one PETA woman as male reporters kept wondering how long the romaine was going to stay in place. more >>

Graham, who is president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, shared his inspirational experience in a February 1 Facebook post, writing that he was fortunately able to visit Make-A-Wish recipient Jaxson Breazeale at his home in Oregon late last week, shortly before the teen passed away on Monday.
