Vegetarian and Vegan Tear Jerkers

It was inevitable. A link to the following video was posted in comments on my post about Lierre Keith’s book, The Vegetarian Myth, within which I was compelled to keep my nose buried for even more hours, last night.

The Vegetarian Myth

Man, oh man, is this ever an amazingly good book: The Vegetarian Myth. What is so compelling to me, as somewhat of a hack when it comes to writing, is that her writing is plain old damn good. It’s really good. You can easily forget what you’re reading because the enjoyment of the style, integration,……...

After reading this bit on CEO John Mackey’s take on "health care reform," and the typical commies up in arms about it, I’m shoving everything else aside and heading to Whole Foods, instanter.

Despair – “I’m too old and I’m too fat to go out.”

Now, mind you, I overheard that at the local pub yesterday afternoon, from a girl who had just been carded by Thane on the other side of the bar. Right before that, she’d told the friend sitting with her: "I haven’t done anything this summer, like go to Music in the Park, or anything…" Sad, eh,……...
