where does this madness end?

give up your lamb roast and save the planet? that's what "some" say.

they came for the trans-fats, and no one said anything
they came for the sugar, and no one said anything,
they came for the fast food, and no one said anything
they come for your lamb and beef, now will you say anything?
how about when they come for your booze?

      So true.

      And I love the most recent comment in the article when I read it: "I don't know who this ding-dong is, but putting a bag over his silly head will also cut CO2 emissions, and to whatever small degree that would be, it will be worth it."


    2. I think there are always extremes on either side - I do my best to eat local, but if I want a banana, none grow in Norfolk, Va., so ... I do think the extremists with the best intentions are more "dangerous" than those on the flip side because it taints the overall message of just being mindful of what you eat, when you eat it and how much of it you eat.

      1. They seem to have forgotten Julia Child's mantra, "All things in moderation."

          Have you looked at the national obesity data? Moderation got thrown out with June Cleaver's pearls.
