While watching Larry King last night where Sir Paul and his Lady bashed Canada's seal hunt with misinformation and archaic footage of clubbing methods from decades ago, I became enraged with their sanctimonious pontificating and how they constantly interrupted Newfoundland Premier Danny Williams. And by the way, folks, eye-rolling is very pre-teen. Danny Williams, by contrast, was extremely articulate and dignified while he patiently explained how the McCartneys were being used by various animal rights organizations, and how they were basically uninformed about Canada's side of the story.
And Larry, it is pronounced NEW-fund-land; not New-FIN-Land!!!! Get it right.
And Sir Paul, you were in a studio in PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND; not Newfoundland, as Premier Williams pointed out. Learn your geography people, before you stick your noses in Canada's business!!
I think those baby seals are cute too, but so are baby humans and we have an open season on them in Canada right up until the moment of birth.
As I said in Friday's National Post, Sir Paul and his wife should be paying attention to that slaughter:

Re: The Issue Harper Can't Ignore, Father Raymond de Souza, March 2.
Father de Souza's critique of Canada's "no restriction on taxpayer-funded abortion at any time during gestation" policy rightly points out that it is probably the most lenient in the world.
Placing some restrictions on access to abortion, or public funding of it, or both, would help stem our declining population in this country and shore up health care in other areas. But quite aside from that, the fact remains that many people see abortion as an unconscionable attack on human life. People like Sir Paul McCartney should at least be paying as much attention to this slaughter as he does to that of baby seals.
