It’s on MSNBC of all places. I guess their “Doc Bloc” actually will have real documentaries on occasion and not just “prison stories”.
Speaking of fast food, I have a New Year’s Resolution. I usually believe these are silly, since they’re typically unreasonable, and no one ever keeps them, but I truly believe in mine.
No more beef. No more pork.
On December 31, 2006, I had a steak, egg, and cheese bagel at McDonald’s for breakfast. I love those. Truly. That was my last one. For lunch, I had a delicious all-beef kosher hot dog at Costco. That was my last one. For dinner, I had my first and last blue-cheese-crusted filet mignon. It was fabulous.
No more. Cows are people, too. Ok, no, they’re not. And neither are pigs. But they’re mammals. They’re tasty, but they’re mammals. No more mammals in my belly. Besides, eating meat, in general, isn’t so good for my health.
So I’ll be eating a lot of chicken and turkey and fish in 2007. Plans to give up all meat, or at least the birds? No, not now. But I’m guessing that taking the step to eliminate beef and pork and our other warm-blooded furry friends will have been useful should I ever decide to completely eliminate meat from my diet.
