good news: Coke and Pepsi kind to animals

A continuing series noticing progress toward the Kingdom of God.

Under pressure from PETA Coke and Pepsi have agreed to discontinue funding research that uses animal subjects. Apparently they had funded research that used rats and chimpanzees as taste-testers. I'm not against all animal testing, but it certainly seems unnecessary in this case, and aparently Coke and Pepsi have agreed. Couldn't human beings taste test our own soft drinks? Some of us even drink them willingly.
