The Fur Flies

Thumbs down to your Newsbites column (Oct. 27) for your shameful absence of sensitivity and humanity in promoting the sale of "furry bottle closers, handmade of genuine raccoon fur" and rabbit fur "coonskin" caps available at Fess Parker Winery and Vineyard in Los Olivos, Calif. Has Fess's wine and merchandising hype gone to your heads?

Acceptance and glorification of needless animal skinning and the opportunists who participate in such vanity-driven slaughter should be condemned, not condoned.
