Los Angelinos are not the smartest. Being a native Los Angelino, I reserve the right to say this. Plus this LA Times article about the new SoCal trend of draping McMansions in animal skins totally backs me up.
Interior designers and buyers justify their purchases as a reasonable use of “the byproducts of the animals we eat,” claiming most critics are hypocrites. At least veg writer and activist Judie Stein gets a word in edgewise: “Maybe the popularity of animal hides underfoot is emblematic of society’s growing disrespect for any form of life, whether it be human or animal.”
