Primates in the News
You've probably seen the story about the "pet" chimpanzee in Connecticut that had to be shot. And you've probably seen the story about the New York Post cartoon that conflated that story with the Stimulus Bill, in a way that was tasteless, at best.
If you can bear reading more about monkeys as pets, this column by Hilzoy is well worth your time (and it's a good read, besides).
