These topics are often humorous. The articles themselves, when you read 'em through, are hilariously dark. http://motherboard.vice.com/en_ca/read/ups-finally-banned-shark-fins-what-now UPS does the right thing, but then in a statement they mention something pretty grim...along the lines of "Even though we're banning it, they're still going to keep hunting and the population is still dwindling". Talk about the-glass-is-half-empty. Sometimes I think despair works its way into the 24 hour media cycle and just recess into the least pragmatic and more pessimistic reaches of our mind. It puzzles me when I read that the trade of a close to endangered species was even being shipped through UPS all this time? Just how far behind is UPS from being anything close to resembling "progressive". Its enough to make me laugh...and cry...but mostly laugh. CHEERS!
