Terror, Architecture and Animal Rights

WTF story of the day comes from the the Daily Mirror (Fight terror, build monuments of art) :
Sri Lankan Premier Ratnasiri Wickramanayaka has asserted that they would fight the war on terrorism in the country while noting the architectural feats of the decades gone by. [link]
Meanwhile in other news,

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) said in a letter dated Feb. 15 to rebel leader Velupillai Prabhakaran that "the explosive device that was set off near the zoo's bird enclosures terrified many animals at the zoo."

In the letter, PETA president Ingrid E. Newkirk pleaded with Prabhakaran "to leave animals out of this conflict."

People saddened by the attack had inundated PETA with messages, Newkirk said.

Among many other good things PETA has done, they were successfully able to make animal right activists looks like some sort of lunatics.
