Never one to miss an opportunity, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has tried to use Grafton Street School’s mercury contamination as a teachable moment.
Heather Robbins Drennen, a graduate of Nelson Place school who now works as special assistant to the executive vice president for PETA, sent a letter to Mary McKiernan, the principal of Grafton Street Elementary School, asking her to take the next step in mercury removal: to stop serving fish in the cafeteria.
From the letter:
I urge you, in light of Grafton Street School’s recent mercury scare, not to overlook the most common source of mercury in schools: fish served in cafeterias. Won’t you please protect your students from mercury poisoning and be kind to animals by pledging to leave fish off Grafton Street School’s lunch menu?
The full letter, after the jump.
