Singer Thanks Me for Setting the Record Straight

(Thank you for your patience if you had trouble accessing this site for the past week. I was the victim of a hacker.)

I wrote to Peter Singer to let him know about my exposing how Francione has been distorting the former's views. Singer personally thanked me for dispelling Francione's misconceptions and resulting misrepresentations. Francione purports to be an expert on animal personhood as the title of his latest book suggests, Animals as Persons, so it is disappointing that he gets wrong one of the main writers in animal ethics on the topic of personhood and killing. It is customary to acknowledge Peter Singer and Tom Regan as the two chief writers in animal ethics.
