Factory Farming

FACTORY FARMING….Over at Tapped, Tara McKelvey says she’s recently turned vegetarian and recommends that you watch The Meatrix, a clever animated takeoff about factory farming. But then there’s this:

More than three million people have visited the site. I bet a lot of them are now ordering cheese-only pizza. And if things continue the way they have been, many more will join them.

I’m not trying to make life any more difficult for pizza lovers, but I’m afraid that dairy cows are factory farmed every bit as much as any other cow. If it’s factory farming that’s turned you into a vegetarian, I’m afraid veganism is really the only way to go. Better order that pizza without cheese either.
