What the hell is happening to celebrities these days? Why are they all wearing fur again? Have you seen all of these jean jackets that guys and gals are wearing lined with mink? It makes me sick. I thought we had convinced everyone that it was cruel and disgusting. And rabbit fur jackets? They're so weak, just because all of the fashion magazines got together with furriers and pushed fur like crazy, these vapid people put on the fur again. Bastards.

Man we really need to marshall the forces and pressure people to knock it off. Just goes to show how totally shallow people are, their conscience blows back and forth with the latest popular breeze. I think I should create some kind of celebrity disgust list comprised of asshole designers who design with fur and the people who wear their clothes.

I mean look at this, this comes straight of the Fucked Fur Council of America's promo web site;

Many models and celebrities (Naomi Campbell, Nadja Auermann, Claudia Schiffer and Cindy Crawford) who once supported groups like PeTA have recently been seen wearing beautiful fur coats in ads, on the runways, and socially. Famous fur lovers include Sharon Stone, Madonna, Demi Moore, Elizabeth Hurley, Gwyneth Paltrow, Goldie Hawn, Cybill Shepard, Glenn Close and many others. Melissa Etheridge, who once posed naked for PeTA, has publicly renounced her support of the group after discovering that it works against finding a cure for AIDS, cancer and other killer diseases, when her father succumbed to cancer.

Peta doesn't oppose finding a cure for cancer and AIDS, (just look how the Fur People skew that), they are against using bullshit, super-funded, animal torture testing, which is a billion dollar holocaust of fraud and torture.

Damn I loved Glenn Close. Someone hack this site for me, pllllllleeeeeeeeeeeease??????????

Oh yeay I just found this website; Fur Shame now that's more like it.

And will you look at this, my weight loss roll model is modelling for Peta and Todd Oldham shot the ad.

"Inside every cold-hearted fur-wearer is a kind person screaming to get out!" says Wilson. Each year, millions of animals are trapped, drowned, or beaten to death in the wild or cruelly gassed, strangled, or electrocuted on fur farms.

Oh God I'm so happy for my Live Journal friends I'm over the moon. Elizabeth and Roger had their baby, go send them some love. They put up four pictures of him, I'd like to copy them here so you can see, but I think it's probably too private and dear to them so I'd better not. Yeay.

Hey wait a sec, am I crazy or does he look a little like my Scotti in that last picture?

I bought some vintage postcards of Great Danes for some people I hardly know at the dog park. I love their dogs so I just couldn't help myself, and thank God, my tenant finally deposited the rent for the month. Lordy that was close.

This is a little blurb about the school where Beau had his interview yesterday. So far it seems like a pretty wonderful place and Beau loved it.

Pursuing New Roads' new dreams
By Robert Scheer
Published June 1, 2000 in the Los Angeles Times

How many guys turn a midlife crisis into an educational revolution? That's the story of Paul Cummins, the founder of Crossroads school, who could have retired gracefully after decades of shepherding one of the best private schools in the country. Instead, he turned over leadership of Crossroads to his assistant, Roger Weaver, and went on to found the New Roads schools with the aim of extending the benefits of a Crossroads-style education to those who can't afford private tuition.

The goal is to provide one full-scholarship match for each paying student. New Roads now operates out of locations in Baldwin Hills, an elementary school at the Boys and Girls Club of Santa Monica, and its high school on Olympic Boulevard, which is holding its first graduation this Sunday.

Paul is a dreamer who gets remarkable things done, and to have created a new model of a private prep education in which more than 50% of the students are non-white and more than 60% get financial aid is a dream worth pursuing.

This guy is not through dreaming and doing, and by the time Paul's done, you can look for his new complex at 3131 Olympic Blvd., the former site of Hot Tub Fever, to become a major hub of educational innovation for the nation. In his free time, Paul has been working another track, restoring the arts to the public schools, but more about that some other time.
