What, no more whaling?

Israel agrees to join U.S., Australia anti-whaling coalition - it's a part of the mixed bag of news today.

Dunno: on one hand I like these cute and cuddly animals. On the other, I was so used to these weekend outings with my friends and family. The salty sea breeze, the search for the spout on the horizon, the excitement of the chase, the short flight of the harpoon sent by Shlomo's powerful hand - all that will be no more?

I shall ask SWMBO to talk to the children about it. They will be inconsolable, I know.
