Dear Z_Apostrophe,

I don’t care what anyone else says — I say excellent article! As much as I admire vegetarians- & I really do, I cannot stand most vegans I’ve met. They are the Tea Party of the eating world, Pentecostal preachers, if you will. The desire to convert, in way too many (that’s even one too many) is sad & pathetic — & all because my food was raised to be food. Well, maybe not all because, but it seems PETA was never that pushy. While vegetarians tended to have the “live & let live” attitudes, vegans are too proud, too pushy & too loud. Certainly not all of them, just the ones only I know, apparently. Cheer up, I want to tell them, in case of a zombie apocalypse, I will die & you will survive, by foraging alone. Take heart in that & leave me the fuck alone!
