Mourning Obama’s ‘wanton disregard’ for life
I was shocked and dismayed by President Obama’s unprovoked and brutal attack on a fly the other day [“Want to be a fly on the wall in White House? Think again,” News, June 17]. This fly, who was minding its own business, had its life senselessly taken. This assault is clear evidence of the president’s wanton disregard for insect life.
Even more disturbing is the fact that PETA is doing absolutely nothing about this public display of cruelty [“PETA wishes Obama hadn’t swatted that fly,” seattletimes.com, Politics & Government, June 18].
