In last Saturday's column, I asked readers to send in suggestions for great places to buy burgers this summer. This is my favorite response:
So, rather than harming yourself by eating animals and encouraging your readers to eat unhealthy by doing the same, why not help spread the message that heart disease and cancer are totally preventable with diet. Use the power of your column to promote good health!
At first I thought my vegetarian missionary son (who's currently eating meat for the Lord in Chile) had written this and sent it to me. But no. It came from a concerned reader. Who's probably right, actually.
Still. I ain't givin' up my burgers.
