    No wonder everyone is always saying to wash your hands and sterilize the counters after you prepare chicken. Ugh.

    I remember very well the first time you interviewed Nathan Runkle, and the images contained on those videos he sent to you have never left my brain in all the intervening years. My daughter, who was then a little younger than Nathan was when I first heard about him, is the one who set the vegetarian example for me. Once I finally made up my mind to become vegetarian, I never looked back. I am an example of a truly healthy old bat (like you are). And isn’t it always the most ardent meat-lover who has the grossest bloated stomach and the most shelf space in the bathroom dedicated to pharmaceuticals? My medicine cabinet? It just contains Tiger Balm, toothpaste, and Vick’s Vapo-Rub.

    Heartbreaking show. We are truly living through the Animal Holocaust. Doesn’t really take much imagination to intuit the Karmic retribution humanity is storing up for itself.
    Regarding Thanksgiving, the best line I ever heard was one of Ice-T’s Lyrics = “Sit up on Thanksgiving & eat turkey? That’s the day your forefathers jerked me!”
