If you've known me for any significant length of time, you'd know also that I'm squarely in the camp of Meat is Murder: Tasty, Tasty Murder. In other words, I'm a staunch carnivore. I love animals, but I also love eating them. There was a period in my life where I endeavored to eat meat with every meal. I would eat it in a box, I would eat it with a fox. I will eat it raw. Rest assured, dear reader, that had I the opportunity, I might even eat you.
But I have many wonderful and otherwise seemingly quite sane friends who are equally staunch herbivores, and I've realized through them that there are many benefits to vegetarianism. It is not in any way a lifestyle into which I can imagine immersing myself forever and ever all in one go, but there was no compelling argument against testing the waters a toe at a time.
We'll see how this shakes out.
