I am wholly uninterested in the fact that Paul Watson thinks human beings are the "AIDS of the earth" and that the only solution is "a complete transformation of all human realities."

What I do find fascinating is that this essay bashing Watson is written by “The Boone Pickens Free Market Fellow.”

The Boone Pickens Free Market Fellow! Like a traveling banjo player at a hootenanny or something. How do I get a title like that?

Henceforth, I demand to be known as The Roscoe Culpepper Town Holler Coot. Unless y’all have better ideas.
