Join the veggie revolution

I HAVE noticed in the Irish Independent recently a certain beating of the vegetarian drum. As a carrot- and-lettuce-muncher myself, I can only applaud your editorial stance.
First off was an article by Steven O'Rourke (Irish Independent, March 30) whose fortitude as a former steak lover was only to be admired. Fight the good fight, Steven!
Then, this weekend had two offerings -- what promises to be an exciting regular weekly veggie treat by Aoife Barry, in your 'Weekend' magazine; and an enlightening article by Suzanne Campbell in your 'Weekend Review', complete with a gruesome photograph of common fowl, waiting to be turned into chicken nuggets -- without doubt, a case of a picture being worth a thousand words.
