Fast Food Nation

I saw the 10:40 showing this evening at the gigundoplex on 3rd Ave and 11th street. I cringed and cried a lot. It made me think about the gradual introduction of seafood and chicken into my diet. It made me think again about vegetarianism - my choice for almost 13 years - as an ethical/political choice. A choice that may very well have nothing to do with compassion for animals, but rather compassion for the people who work in the meat industry.

Go see the movie. It sheds light on so many interconnected issues. Unfortunately, I'm too exhausted to say anything insightful about any of them right now.
