Well, I do want to thank whatever thoughtful person sent me Vegan Freak, because I read it this weekend. And frankly, I may never eat again. Describing milk as "full of cow pus" is a willful and extravagent distortion of the truth, but after you've read it 87 times, even if you know it's not true, that extra large skim cappuccino begins to look distinctly unappetizing.

I read somewhere that evolutionary biologists now believe that digust co-evolved with the decision to eat meat. After reading that book, I may be devolving.
