Thanks very much for your response, Charlotte. Yes, I know the social aspect can be important, and, in the past, I have gained a great deal just from associating with the members of VSET and attending their potlucks. As a bachelor, that was the best I ate all month. I’d be attending their potlucks and KnoxVegans’ still if I didn’t have work conflicts.

But we missed a golden opportunity to advance our concepts. Many vegetarians actually don’t have much understanding about nutrition and, for example, have accepted the nonsense from Dr. Mercola and others about tropical oils being good for you (they’re not). I feel the more veg*ns know about diet the better we can plead our case.

I was once on the board of VSET and I’m surprised to learn that Howard Lyman was ever here. He didn’t mention that to me, and many on the board (not all) always pooh-poohed the idea, saying it was just beyond our capabilities. But perhaps he was here without my having been aware of it. Anyhow, his requests are quite modest and include someplace to crash. I know we could do it.

I have to go to work now, but whatever I can do to help in such matters, let me know.

Yours truly,
John Mayer
