Gotta Admire Their Priorities

From FNC: People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has approached the city fathers of Fishkill NY about changing their name to something more "fish-friendly," like, perhaps! "Fishkill" comes from the Dutch for "fish stream."

Amazingly, there's nothing about Schuylkill County PA. "Schuylkill" probably has Dutch origins too and has its name on the county, an expressway, a's pronounced like "school kill," which might dredge up memories of the Columbine CO or Bridgman MI school massacres. But, sorry, there are no fish or animals involved.

    I'm always amazed because it usually seems apparent to me that something like that should conclusively demonstrate to the public the extent of the blanket of ignorance under which PETA operates. They have no idea about the heritage of the area or the meanings of the names in the language they were given in. Rubes.

    And I've been trying for years to convince them that I am the rightful heir and ruler of Peekskill.
