Are you vegan or vegetarian? If so why did you go veg?

I'd read an interview with Dennis Weaver (McCLOUD) in the mid-70's and he talked about being a vegetarian. I'd never heard of that concept. It's NOT like I became one just because he was one; but it put the idea in my head. On April 14, 1979, I stopped in the middle of a fried chicken dinner at the cafeteria and didn't eat meat again. In the words of Melanie Safka, "I don't eat animals, and they don't eat me." I just like them too much to eat them.
