In May activists in Washington protested Air India’s alleged role in shipping animals for experimentation.

When an obfuscating cynic like Alex Beam writes a heartfelt opinion piece, it is very powerful (“The PETA enthusiast,” Op-ed, July 11). Beam’s ability to understand what is behind the drama of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is a lesson to those who cringe at PETA’s attention-getting tactics.

He writes, “That is why everybody hates PETA. That is why I love PETA, why I always have, and why I suspect I always will.” It is the reason I now love Beam as I never before have.
