Hi Windsmoke,
Sad, but very true. :(

'No, no, how can you say that? It is for scientific research.' Insert rather a lot of expletives here. You are right, it is about greed. Thanks Windsmoke.

Don't know how you keep doing it, but you've done it again.
I like it.
A lot.

I love whales. Dolphins too.
I also like tuna, but in an entirely different way.

Absolutely true.
Makes you feel ashamed to be a human being, doesn't it?

Avarice is a much better word than greed - but either way, it doesn't help the poor whales.

G' Day RED: Agreed :-).
