You wouldn't expect to see a link to a People Magazine story here, but the magazine covered the Humane Society's recent award to Hayden Panettiere, a star of the TV show "Heroes." I was so moved when I read about Hayden's efforts to save dolphins from a horrible slaughter in Japan (sadly, she and her colleagues were unsuccessful). I've never forgotten that story, and I'm glad she was honored for her willingness to step forward in the name of animal welfare causes. So many young "startlets" today have so little to say about anything important or are spending their time partying or in rehab, and here is a young girl using her celebrity for something real. Congratulations, Hayden!
