excerpt from A Friend of the Earth

by TC Boyle

"I've never believed in vegetarianism myself, except as an ecological principle- obviously, you can feed a whole lot more people on rice or grain than you can on  a feed-intensive animal like a steer, and further, as everyone alive today knows, it was McDonald's and Burger King and their ilk that denuded the rain forests to provide range for yet more cows, but, still, I don't make a religion of it. Meat isn't the problem, people are."
