PETA protests "disrespectful" fish tossing.

PETA will picket a veterinarians' convention in Seattle next month because it will have a demonstration of the fish tossing made famous by the city's fish markets.  Fish handlers will show off their halibut hurling skills at the convention, which the animal rights protesters say is disrespectful.  They say that dead fish should not be treated like toys.  A Seattle Times editorial suggests that this protest is so silly even for PETA that it probably is a publicity stunt.
