Dear Pamela:
I recently received a copy of your "101 Reasons Why I'm a Vegetarian" from you. I have been a vegetarian for almost five years and there were many things listed I found very disturbing and upsetting. I had no idea what was happening. I am thankful people such as yourself are out there circulating information for consumers. It's so unbearable. I cannot decide which is worse -- the treatment of the animals or the ingesting of their flesh! Each time I change my phone message on my answering machine I leave one of your "101 Reasons."
--Angry & disgusted, R. O'Neil, Granada Hills, CA

Dear Pam,
Our vigil at Townsends [chicken slaughter plant in Millsboro, DE where one and a half million chickens die every week] in late April went very well. There were at least 25 people from several states and we got extensive coverage. I did several preliminary radio interviews, and got letters in the newspapers, etc. It was proclaimed by the Delaware media that this was the first "chicken" protest ever in Delaware--a major poultry producing state, unused to attention in this area. You should have seen the chickens being trucked past fancy shops on the Main street with their sad, defeated little faces and hopeless eyes. It's the saddest thing in the world.
--Karen Davis, United Poultry Concerns
