As another example of how the most extreme tactics to get a message across may not always carry the day, here's a Washington Post article about a supposedly kinder, gentler approach by Compassion Over Killing. If nothing else, the group has a hook that's gotten them this major coverage, exposing WP readers to facts they wouldn't otherwise encounter. And generating great quotes like the one from this egg producer, who says banning cages would only drive up the cost of eggs. "Do they weigh the animal's life, which is genetically designed to be in that environment to lay eggs, do they weigh that at a greater importance than the opportunity of someone to go out and buy cheap food?" I love it when they spell out job one like that.
