Media Circus: Burgers, Wine and a Lamb Named Hilda

The New York Times “Dining and Wine” Wednesday feature is right: animal rights/welfare/vegetarianism is getting more press in the last six months than possibly ever before. Of course, three makes a trend–this week, we’ve got five. There’s New York City veggie burgers mapped on Gridskipper (hey, ours is better); “vegan for your heart” in AM NewYork; ambivalent vegetarians on MSNBC; the Times’ Farm Sanctuary versus happy meat piece; and in Food and Wine, the meat-eating “vegetarians” who are convinced by those welfarist foodie arguments.

Ultimately, 40% of the Gridskipper burgers aren’t vegan, amNY has bad facts (“Nuts, avocados, oil: Taboo… In other words, he was asking me to become a vegan”), and half those MSNBC readers are just as meat-eating as the Food and Whiners. Shit, is it summer trend backlash already? It’s not even August.

    UGH!!! is right. It’s still dead. When long time veg friends leap full on back to beef, I can’t ever find the logic in it. How do you drop years of an ethical commitment just like that? This is what I don’t understand. And it happens a lot.
    (Full disclosure: a few years ago I had a disease that caused me to lose a great deal of weight and I was dangerously ill; a friend’s mom convinced me to try eating some meat to gain weight, and because I was a wreck, I agreed. I ate chicken three times over several weeks and the fourth time I was about to order it at some restaurant my inner ethicist screamed at me – HOW CAN YOU DO THIS to yourself and to them? And I never ate meat again. I recovered fully and remained vegetarian.)
