I've run across a couple interesting articles today and last night. The first one shows the benefits of eating a vegan diet. It pretty much is in line with one of the books I'm reading right now (see "Currently Reading" section). The article is all about how a vegan diet is much healthier and all that. If I had the will power, I'd be a vegan. I really don't think I can cut out all dairy and eggs though. Being a quasivegetarian (I eat fish and seafood) is hard enough, especially when I eat out. Maybe I should just cut down on the dairy and eggs. But that would mean less ice cream. I'm not sure if I could do that.
The second article Jeremy sent me and it's about a possible raise in the minimum wage! Also in my inbox this morning was an email from Sojourners urging me to call my representative about the bill. I'm resisting going on a rant about the current minimum wage and the republican controlled congress - just read the article instead.
