    No, because he didn't order shark-anything.

    Only in this country can a news article followed by a 9-page discussion on said news article be about a bowl of soup that a guy didn't eat.
    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."

    I totally agree. I have not joined in the criticism of the President on this and PETA does take things way too far. However, finning is a horrible practice that has to be stopped.
