Culture War Dispatches

from a Progressive People's Republic

Tuesday, March 02, 2010


I was listening to an R&B compilation that has a group called the Daktaris. I had forgotten about the television show Daktari, based on the movie Clarence the Cross-eyed Lion. It was on from 1966-69, about the same era as Born Free (with Elsa the lion). Back then it was a family show, but today it's classified as a children's show. The plot revolved around a veterinary clinic in Africa where the heroes defend animal rights. It was a more innocent time when we could all cheer for the cause of animal rights. Sadly groups like PETA have radicalized and perverted the cause.
