Reading Edward O. Wilson's novel Anthill has given Joan Rivers a new respect for ants. Here's what she told People magazine:
"Those poor ants work 24/7! And when they fight other ant colonies, to look bigger they stand on pebbles. 'I'll show you—I'm getting up on this grain of sand.' … They work their whole lives; it's so sad. Now I don't throw my sandwiches away; I put them on the streets. Let the ants have a little break. The other day I had half a hot dog, and I put it in a tree. This woman said, 'You're littering,' and I said, 'I'm feeding the ants!'"
Joan may be on to something here. In her honor, I am going to refrain from cleaning my kitchen counter*.

*Just kidding, Mom.
I've caught some fascinating tidbits in media reports about Chelsea Clinton's recent wedding: The bride dropped the ring during the ceremony. She and Marc did a sexy tango during the reception. Chelsea's father, former President Bill Clinton, followed his daughter's lead by going vegan—and he moonwalked during the reception!Wait—Bill Clinton went vegan?That's right: People magazine's Sandra Sobieraj Westfall recently revealed to Today show viewers that, because Chelsea is so concerned about her father's health, Mr. Clinton "went on a vegetarian, no dairy diet, took lots of walks, and he dropped twenty pounds."So, will he stick with heart-healthy, animal-friendly, green cuisine? Considering his heart problems vs. vegan vitality and incredible vegan edibles, I'm optimistic. What do you think?Written by Karin Bennett
There are a lot of sexy individuals on People's Most Beautiful list (OK, to be precise, there are 100), but People's done us proud with it's number one: Christina Applegate.
We can tell you firsthand that Christina truly is beautiful inside and out. When she was 15, she learned about the horrors of the fur industry, and a few years later, she was caring enough to strip down for a PETA anti-fur e-card.
So congratulations, Christina! You deserve it. You are a beautiful person, with no lack of either passion or compassion.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
