10/3 - Feed a Pew Fellow to the Great White?
Is it possible someone could feed a Pew Fellow, holding a copy of the Pew Oceans Commission Report, to the Great White Shark on Cape Cod? The mass media would cover the event so thoroughly it would make up for the lack of national attention to the Pew Oceans Report last year. No?

How to make the most of media coverage.
Maybe we can have Sen. Lisa Murkowski (AK) feed Gov. Tony Knowles to the shark, Pew report in-hand.
Let's make sure we hit all the bases.
Anyone wonder why the shark is there? What else did humanity screw-up to make it come in to the shallows? Another sonar test, some other military exercise, maybe it's just fed up with the trash, perchance?
Side note on the article: "state environmental police" They have a state environmental POLICE agency? Are they going to bust the shark for trespassing?
And, a great line from the F&G commissioner:
"It is a wild creature," said state Fish and Game Commissioner David Peters. "It has a mind of its own."
REALLY? "wild"? "mind of its own"? Wow!
Does that mean, perhaps, that we should treat these creatures with more respect?!
Great idea except the shark would likely get terminal indigestion.
Not to worry...we're dumping enough drugs in the water these days to take care of the indigestion (along with depression and a host of other maladies)
SO I GUESS MAN IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL THE THINGS WITH WRONG THE PLANET?DOES ANYBODY CARE TO GUESS THE AMOUNT OF OIL RELEASED DAILY VIA FISSURES IN THE OCEAN FLOOR ETC...? OR WOULD YOU DISALLOW THAT AS PROPAGANDA!JUST SO YOU KNOW,IF YOU WERE TO COMBINE ALL THE OIL TO DATE, IT WOULD NOT EQUAL THE AMOUNT REALEASED NATURALLY EVERY DAY
