Rock star should get out of seal­ing de­bate

The Compass - - EDITORIAL -

I wish Paul McCart­ney and his like would use their money and their mouths to bet­ter hu­mankind and leave our seal in­dus­try alone.

There are so many worth­while causes to take part in: the lost girls over­seas, home­less­ness, ad­dic­tions, world hunger; the list is end- less.

Our seal in­dus­try comes un­der a cat­e­gory of dire im­por­tance as well. It’s an in­dus­try, a liveli­hood that sup­ports fam­i­lies and busi­ness.

McCart­ney would do well to in­vest in it as a prof­itable ven­ture and add to his riches. Oth­er­wise, hands off McCart­ney. White coats don’t stay cute for long. I love my seal­skin coat and the flip­pers were good too.
