Norm, don't feel bad. I feed fish to my fish and I feed fish to myself,
too. I was just wondering why there aren't more universally accepted
standards of decency regarding the treatment and confinement of live
animals reared or sold commercially. Besides the slobs and profiteers who
are making things tough for responsible keepers and collectors, isn't it
the right thing to do morally?
