...The One-Minute Pundit

Today passing a vegan restaurant on our beloved South Street we saw a poster listing lots of famous vegetarians and vegans. Properly administered a vegetarian diet is healthy, but we couldn't help musing about what a sour old crank Bernard Shaw became late in life. Moreover we suspect the ac-TORS among the famous are doing it in part because they believe animals can think. We've said before we'd guess science will ultimately prove some animals have a conscience. Unfortunately lions and tigers eat meat. Cats and dogs eat meat. Some fish eat other fish. Some birds eat worms and insects. Some insects eat other insects. Short a mass brainwashing of all forms of life it will be difficult to square a vegetarian diet in man with a carnivorous one in other life forms. Pursuing vegetarianism is fine, but it ought to be for good reasons.
