I watched the SeaWorld press conference this afternoon and saw Jim Atchison President & CEO of SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment as he stood before a backdrop of supposedly happy killer whales swimming in their tank. I wasn't expecting him to announce that SeaWorld has seen the light and is going to free all of their whales from captivity. But I wasn't expecting to see such a callous man, who in so many words said, sure the death of a "trainer" is a tragedy, but the Killer Whale Show Must Go On -- and right away too -- profits must come before people! And it is business as usual! SeaWorld is open for business! And by the way, Don't blame the whale!
I don't blame the whale.
