Re: “A 'bleeding' veggie burger lands in Mt. Pleasant next week

The Beyond Burger is awesome - probably my favorite all-plant burger I've tried so far! A win-win-win for health, environment, the animals - AND tastebuds. :)

Re: “The One-Pot wonder that is Raccoon Stew

If you're bothered by this image, you're right. Any person with a normal empathy level will be. That's because you see the animal as an individual - not a something - a someone who just wanted to be free to live his/her life and did not deserve to suffer.

But those who commented that there's no difference between killing a raccoon - or a dog or cat - for 'food' and slaughtering farmed animals are also right. Chickens, turkeys, goats, pigs and cows are all individual beings who are funny, affectionate, intelligent and curious. They suffer in horrific ways as their bodies are ripped apart and made into 'products' wrapped in plastic and available at a grocery store near you.

All of the animals you eat are still babies when they are slaughtered. Eating them destroys human health, destroys the environment, and destroys our very souls. Watch Earthlings and Meet Your Meat free online and live your values.

Re: “The circus is coming, and so are the protesters

It is not rocket science that animal circuses are inherently cruel and barbaric. Children feel that something is not right- that's why they will always ask if the 'animals are okay?'. They can see the hopeless look in the animals' eyes just as well as we can.

We all know that tigers should not spend most of their lives in small cages. We know that elephants should not be broken as babies by being chained away from their mothers for weeks at a time, then beaten into standing on their heads in an arena in Dayton or Hoboken or Charleston for our 'amusement'.

It's time for the US to look beyond the fact that a corrupt corporation makes money from this awful practice- and finally ban it, just as SO many other countries already have done.

Kudos to the City Paper for this excellent article!
