In The News

Whole Paycheck is moving towards a kindler, gentler crustacean policy...

Whole Foods Market Inc. may stop selling live lobsters unless it can find a more humane way to treat the crustaceans in their journey from sea to stockpot.

If more compassionate standards are not implemented by that date, Whole Foods Market will discontinue the sale of live lobsters," the company said in a statement. It also plans to review tank conditions in its stores, with an aim "to mimic conditions of a lobster's natural habitat."

The supermarket's co-founder and CEO John Mackey said, "We are viewing the lobster as a live creature rather than a commodity that deserves no concern."

"We're certainly not inhumane to our lobsters nor would we ever be inhumane to any animal," he said.

Now if they could just do something about the temperature of those little hot tubs people insist on putting them in once they get them home.

It's the perfect Christmas gift.

#1 sign you may not be totally objective:

"It would be nice, fitting and pretty close to sexually exciting if Bush somehow acknowledged his mistakes and said he had learned from them,"

At least he's not writing about horses.

More shocking news of the appalling legacy of Hurricane Katrina. May God have mercy on their souls.

How's that again?

Four state legislators in Massachusetts have introduced a bill that would soften the crime of bestiality, a move pro-family activists say is a natural progression of the state's legalizing same-sex marriage.

You're not doing yourselves any favors here, people.

Build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door:

These are no ordinary shoes.

A compass and flashlight dangle from one shoelace. The pocket in the tongue is for money or pain relievers. A rough map of the border region is printed on a removable insole.

They are red, white and green, the colors of the Mexican flag. On the back ankle, a drawing of Mexico's patron saint of migrants.

The high-top sneakers cost $215 at a San Diego boutique, but the designer is giving them away to migrants before they cross to the United States.
