Two tragedies just happened in Romania and Australia that have left this hardened war correspondent shaken and horrified. An old tub of a cargo ship named the Queen Hind (likely Indian-owned but convenience flagged), packed with 14,600 live sheep, capsized at its dock on Romania’s Black Sea coast due to overcrowding and improper load balancing....

Reviewing their entire itinerary, Donald Worster reckons that over twenty-eight months they probably shot-for their... Read More
First of Four Parts: Peter's Dream
Start with God. The Bible is a meat-eater's manifesto. Before the Fall, Adam and Eve were vegetarian. They fed on grains, nuts and fruits. Then Eve ate the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil-or at least that's the way Adam explained it to God. They were cast forth from the Garden,... Read More
