Regarding Britney

By Rick Pearcey

The Darwinian worldview says human beings and animals derive from the same cosmic stock. We are told by authorities that there is a difference in degree but not in kind between humanity and rest of the animal kingdom.

This is the enlightened view. Then comes Britney Spears without underwear.

Her fashion attire is as natural as anybody’s unclothed dog, and yet the human world is agog with news of Britney. If we hear news about animals and clothes, it’s usually when Spot has them on.

The meaning is clear: Darwin’s work is unfinished. Millions of people seem unaware that what’s good for the canine is good for the celebrity.

Our pet dog, Copper, who is head of ranch security at the Pearcey Estates, has said nothing on the matter. Then again, he doesn’t wear underwear.

He's totally cool about jumping in and out of cars. Shows no fear of the Dagarazzi.

Back to Britney and her critics. The world awaits a statement from AETH -- Animals for the Ethical Treatment of Humans.
