true,.. but it is extremely ludicrous to think that a government body
would go to all that trouble for a few common aquarium fish which are
considered perfectly normal and common to own. Although I have faith
that the article is true, I still have a hard time believing in such
mammoth levels of stupidity and pointless cruelty. It is just that when
things don't make any sense whatsoever, it is difficult to believe.
Perhaps why there is so little belief in ghosts and UFO's and such. ;]
