AM Briefing from Bowlersdesk.com for May 22, 2014

San Diego Police are on the lookout this morning for a home invasion suspect. Last night at around 8:40 the suspect walked into an apartment at 1330 Market St in downtown San Diego, pulled a gun, and demanded cash. The resident gave him some money and the suspect left. Police describe the suspect as a black man, 6 feet 1 inch talk, 180 pounds, mid 20’s, wearing a camouflage jacket.

Today at noon the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is unveiling an anti-SeaWold poster at San Diego’s International Airport Terminal 2. PETA had to sue the airport to be able to put the post up. Originally the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority refused to place the poster. It depicts actress Kathy Najimy along with text saying “Welcome to San Diego! If you love animals like I do please avoid SeaWorld.”

SeaWorld responds by saying “PETA is an extremist organization and this ad demonstrates that, once again, they are more interested in publicity stunts than helping animals”
