=====Culturalia: Ad Battle=====
//"If he was alive, I think he'd have some big questions about how the ad cheapens our lives ..."//

===Summary===

After TheChanges, the line between theri rights and animal rights becomes a contentious subject -- and can occasionally strike a raw nerve. A week after a San Francisco minotaur gets killed by a hit-and-run driver, PETA features a dead minotaur in one of its anti-meat-eating ads, and it touches off a bitter war of words.

==Trivia==
~- The SFO theri rights group's name is a (not terribly subtle) in-joke. Check its initials.
~- Believe it or not, I didn't make the car a Taurus for irony value. It's what I was driving at the time, so it's what came to mind as a random car model. Fate, it seems, occasionally loves a cruel jest.
