I absolutely agree Tonya. The article was sorry to the extreme ... starting with "No one questions the power of pastrami.". The animal suffering inherent in commercial and even most "family" farms is not a joke. The older I get (I'm 67) the less patience I have with the "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil" dictates of the animal eaters. The most tasty morsel is not worth the suffering of an animal .... in fact, the realization that transitory culinary pleasures are more often then not the end produce of years of torment for one or more sentient creatures makes the choice completely immoral. When I see someone eating a bland veal patty - often covered with sauce because it is so tasteless, knowing that it was created from slices of a young calf torn from it's mother, undernourished, raised in intolerable conditions, then trucked to slaughter, I want to butcher the "epicure".
