The part of the story that distreses me is this-

"The federal government is already offering West Bank Light and Old Orchard Light, Romer Shoal's sister lighthouses in the Lower Bay, for private preservation, as long as they are not used for profit and maintained as navigation aids. So far, only the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has shown interest. PETA wants to use at least one of the lighthouses as a place to teach the public that fish feel pain and should not be caught and eaten. "

I'm an animal lover but I think that many times PETA and similar groups take things a bit too far- IMHO- and would prefer they leave lighthouses out of thier cause.
