A call for compassion

I just finished Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer. It's a thorough and thoughtful look at how we got to a point in human history where animals who are being raised for food, are being treated as if they're already dead. It's not a vegan manifesto, just a challenging and well written perspective on our relationship to what we eat.

As a pleasant surprise, I heard Martha Stewart recommend this book on NPR the other day, along with her other hopes for the New Year.
