The Humane Society of the U.S. (a 4-star charity) is partnering with the National Enquirer, the best-selling paper in the country. Every week they will run a story about an animal abuser and either the jail sentence/punishment or legislation regarding similar situations, etc. They publish either a pre-printed cut-out coupon to send to the powers that be in that situation, or an address/phone so people can individually contact judges, etc., either to praise and thank them for stern sentencing, or to reprimand (or berate) someone for minimizing the seriousness of the crime.
I think everyone wins, in this case, except drunken celebrities who might now gain a larger tabloid audience.
Good on HSUS and the Enquirer!

That would be cool, too! So many people get so riled up by these celebs that it just may be more effective, and get more peoples' heads out of the sand.

(Altough I could picture a scenario like the Fresh Prince episode where Will takes photos of Celebrities' "Houses at Night" and gets into that stink with Jay Leno!)
