Howard Lyman Appearance

On MONDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1999 Howard Lyman will speak from 7pm-9pm

Howard Lyman is a cattle rancher turned vegetarian activist who is best
known for his appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" were he debated
Gary Weber of the National Cattlemen's Beef Association. Lyman's comments
about Mad Cow Disease caused Winfrey to say that she had been "stopped
cold from eating another burger." Texas cattle ranchers responded by suing
Lyman and Winfrey for libel. Not only did the ranchers loose the trial, but they
also stirred up a national debate on free speech and the safety of the US Beef
