I hope everyone will have a chance to like The Intrepid Herbivores on
Facebook. They have done a lively, polished pilot on traveling in
Thailand, including a visit to a genuine elephant sanctuary, and let us
all know that uttering the word "J" virtually anywhere in the country
will let people know you want vegan food. The more "likes" they get,
the easier it will be to get funding.
Newark mayor Cory Booker won the democratic primary for U S Senate in
New Jersey. He ran against three outstanding candidates, but has great
name recognition and popularity in the state. He is vegetarian for
environmental reasons, and would be vegan except for his "inability",
which of course means current unwillingness, to give up Ben and Jerry's.
(Hey, remember when you could never be vegan because you could never
give up _____________? I do.) Let's hope he wins the seat. I can feel
a presidential run in his future.
