    Damn, Tim Howard. Damn 🙂 Just another reason to love you!

    • JL

      Right, @runcrissierun:disqus? HAWT.

    I love what you do, but please….don’t support PETA. They are so problematic and do not represent the vegan or vegetarian movement well. Nathan Winograd, a vegan and companion animal super-advocate that I respect, details the problems he’s encountered with PETA here:

    I encourage all those in the animal rights movement to consider the dark side of PETA and to avoid promoting them in the media and elsewhere. They do not respect life.

    • JL

      I do support PETA, @disqus_Z9ONTdrYlg:disqus, and I respect your decision not to.

      Since you’ve posted Winograd’s position, I’ll share PETA’s response so that anyone reading this can consider both sides of the issue:

        Thanks for the link you posted. I am quite experienced with the companion animal protection movement, and I find there are some false premises there. For example, Winograd criticizes shelter management, particularly the Executive Director – not the shelter workers. Another example is that PETA implies that all No Kill shelters are closed or limited admission. More and more open admission shelters are adopting the No Kill Equation. At least from either side, we both agree that a key component is getting affordable spay/neuter accessible to all.
