  • The old Somerset county jail in Skowhegan, Maine is being replaced, and the county commissioners are soliciting proposals for its future use. The group "People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals" (PETA) has stepped forward with an idea: make it the "world's first Lobster Empathy Center":

    "A prison is the perfect setting to demonstrate how lobsters suffer when they are caught in traps or confined to cramped, filthy supermarket tanks," PETA wrote in a June 2 letter to the commissioners. "The center will teach visitors to have compassion for these interesting, sensitive animals while also commemorating the millions of lobsters who are ripped from their homes in the ocean off the coast of Maine each year before being boiled alive."

    That makes me hungry. Is that wrong?
