PETA President, Ingrid Newkirk, reportedly sent the following to Sharon Stone: "Given that millions of people... were killed, injured, and left homeless by the recent earthquake in China, everyone was shocked to hear you dismiss the devastating effects of this disaster. However, your cavalier attitude did not come as a surprise to us. We are used to the indifference that you flaunt and the callous remarks that you make about the suffering and death of the animals whose fur you wear so often. Scientific studies suggest that the prefrontal regions of the brains of people who lack empathy might be underdeveloped. Here's our offer: Would you allow PETA to pay for a scan of the prefrontal region of your brain to determine if comments and actions that seem to demonstrate a lack of empathy are the result of a physical defect?" That's very good of you, Ingrid, I'm sure Sharon needs a hand with all those hospital bills; the slew of MRIs she's no doubt endured since her brain hemorrhage a few years back must be a strain on the ole finances. Would you be tempted to undergo a scan yourself?
