Stanley and I have a fishing report to assemble. Can you help me fill this space?

FROM Steve Horwedel:

I heard that American Idol is going to use Carrie Underwood’s song “Home Sweet Home” and how Carrie will be donating some of the proceeds to a good cause, the (HSUS) Humane Society of the United States. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. I would like to give out some information that most people are not aware of. The HSUS is not to be confused with the American Humane Society, or the Animal Humane Society which are non-profit organizations that support animal shelters and strive to give pets good homes and I completely support. The HSUS is the largest anti-hunting, anti-fishing, anti-trapping, anti-meat in any and all forms organization in the country. They do not oversee or support animal shelters or work to save pets. They are a very radical animal rights organization with ties to PETA, ALF(Animal Liberation Front) and ELF(Earth Liberation Front). The last two radical groups are on the FBIs domestic terrorist watch list. I wanted Carrie’s fans to know, many of which are hunters and fisherman who love their steak and burgers what they are supporting when they support Carrie Underwood and by supporting Fox and American Idol since they are supporting Carrie by using her song. Time for Fishermen, Hunters and Outdoorsmens voices to be heard.
