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
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.
