Are we meat eaters or vegetarians? Part I

One of the problems – if it could be called a problem – in writing this blog and moderating the comments is most readers are pretty intelligent. Occasionally I have the angry vegetarian wander in, take me to task for my errant ways, and, after a comeback or two on my part, drift away to […]

The Vegetarian Myth

Before I get into a discussion of the absolutely phenomenal book you see pictured below, I’ve got a few disclosures to make.  First, I’m not much of a believer in the notion of man-made global warming or climate change (as they now call it since temperatures have been constantly falling instead of rising).  I’m a […]

I haven’t read the book, but I assume it’s a recycling of all the Dean […]

Steven Colbert minces Michael Jacobson

A reader sent me a link to the CSPI (Center for Science in the Public Interest) Scam site, which is great. It will become a part of my daily read. In the particular link she sent, there was a video of Michael Jacobson, the director of CSPI, making an appearance on Steven Colbert’s show. Colbert, […]
