"Animal, Vegetable, Miserable"

Check out the "Animal, Vegetable, Miserable" op-ed in today's New York Times, written by a philosophy professor at Bucknell University, on what it means to be a vegan. Though it's not particularly thought-provoking (at least for those of us who are already in the know about ethical eating), it is a thoughtful piece on how most people, especially around food-centric holidays like Thanksgiving, tend to ask themselves if their choice animal was raised ethically instead of asking if it's in fact ethical to consume the animal to begin with.

I think we already know the answer to that.
