This week's TIME magazine featured the vegetarian trend in
the U.S. (http://www.time.com/time/covers/1101020715/story.html)
I wonder why they didn't interview any reliable vegetarian/vegan
researchers regarding nutrition issues. Anyway, I felt that
TIME was ridiculing vegans as if they are just fanatics. (Still
a long way to go!) Anyone who want to write a letter to defense

|On 6/28-30's the Asian Wall Street Journal, I
found the article on a whale meat eating experience by an American
reporter. ("Sentiment in a Stew.") First he had misgivings
about eating whale meat but couldn't stop being amazed at the
gorgeous course of sashimi, whale bacon, tongue soup, and whale
stew dish. It makes sense he cited whale meat lovers such as
the proprietress of a whale meat restaurant and her customers
with his own sympathies.
Eating whale meat is a sensitive, as well as now very complicated,
issue and I guess the conservationists can't conceive those
who claim their rights of "traditional" way of doing.
Even if the news of highly-contaminated whale meat, KUJIRA lovers
would never change their mind.
Still, to the comment like "The whale meat is our real
beef," only vegetarians/vegans could insist, "But
we don't eat beef." You are vegetarian/vegan although you
know how delicious meat is since you believe it is right to
stop eating animals. Otherwise, the voice of "Don't Hunt
Whales" won't have the power against the words, "That's
just a cultural difference and it's rude to tell us what we
can eat." In this sense, I totally agree with PETA's current
campaign of "Eat The Whales." (http://eatthewhales.com/)
