The real reason Obama refuses to go vegan

  1. Come on…this is the reason most Americans will never go vegan, and why other nations covet our lifestyle. It's why the Amazon rainforests continue to fall, and all I can reason is that since few people alive on earth today are going to be alive 100 years from now, we might as well live it up.

    That's what I told an organic farmer at Union Square Park today. He was eating a tuna sandwich, and I said casually, "You know, they're going to be extinct by 2012." (What will we feed the Olympic athletes?) He said he doesn't eat meat, but he does eat fish; I said all fish is contaminated with PCBs and mercury; he'd do better to eat meat. "What about sardines?" he asked. "They're fish," I replied. "They come from the ocean." "My sandwich doesn't taste as good now!" he said laughingly.

    This man has a degree in forestry from Yale; most Americans are even less aware than he is. I would certainly not get down on the President; he has a hard enough struggle as it is with cigarettes.
