I hope this is okay, but I'd like to respond to a couple comments you made.
>>And no matter what you think of how they get the message out there ... at least they're doing something. >And for some people the "in-your-face" and sometimes brash approach is what works.... But I also acknowledge that there is, like it or not, a segment of the populace that won't hear the message if it isn't shouted at them.<<

This is true, but in my case it had the opposite effect. Peta just came across so outlandish and offensively, that it made me think most vegetarians care more about other animals than human beings. Imo Peta acts very insensitively in such a way that it actually hurts its causes with the general public, because everyone just thinks they are nuts. No offence intended to Peta supporters. Peta has obviously done a lot of good; there is no denying that. But the real question is do they turn so many people off by their methods that the general public is unwilling to listen to most of what they have to say?
I hope I haven't offended anyone, but I felt this point might perhaps be overlooked.
Have a happy!
