that is the town featured in the new doco “the cove”.  the town that broome just cut its sister town ties with. probably some of the kids i teach are from families that hunt dolphins.

saw some shorts for the “cove” and i am not really sure if i want to watch it.  got the feeling that i would be bashed around the head a bit with the sight of screaming bloodied dolphins as they are hacked to pieces. without seeing a bunch of cows, chickens or pigs being killed, i would perhaps feel the movie was lacking a sense of comparison.  i would wonder if i was being emotionally manipulated.

dolphins are beautiful.  so are cows.  beauty has never been a reason to not eat something.

not sure i am for or against dolphin eating.  not sure it matters.  it would take a lot to get dolphin killers in japan to give up the practice.  more than just a couple of protests and a doco.
