Thank you!

I want to thank all of the great people that came to the book discussions of Righteous Porkchop. I was able to attend the final discussion and realized that I missed some great ideas the previous 3 weeks.

Two students from Kirkwood's Humane Officer program came that night. They hadn't had a chance to read the book (Molly gave them a copy), but their contributions were invaluable. I came away knowing that Hahn Niman's message wasn't an isolated instance. Our two students had the same information--cutting the beaks off of poultry, the overflowing of poultry cages, the gestational sow cages and more.

The rest of our group were wonderful, also. Several of us are already vegan or vegetarian. Several more of us are searching for alternate sources of fresh meat. And one of us (after reading the last chapters of the book) can't eat seafood.

This was a great discussion group. Most of us will be at the panel discussion (April 14 at 2:00 p. m. at the Marion Public Library), at the vendor fair (April 22 from 1 to 5 at Westdale Mall )and at the presentation by Hahn Niman (on May 11 at 7:00 p.m. at the Hotel at Kirkwood). Hope to see you there.
