Check This Out...Vegetarian Preparedness!
By [email protected]

Many of us are presently in the grip of winter's cold, with the threat of snow and ice storms looming over us. While there is plenty of information on how to plan for and prepare for natural disasters, sometimes the suggestions are not suitable for vegetarians.

Registered dietitian Reed Mangels and The Vegetarian Resource Group have produced a free, four-page booklet entitled Disaster Planning for Vegetarians. It offers a sample menu of items that need no refrigeration, cooking or water to prepare. Also included is a list of items for a three-day food supply disaster kit.

To order the booklet, send a self-addressed envelope with two first-class stamps to:
Disaster Planning

Baltimore, MD 21203

The Awful Truth!
Michael Moore, producer of the film "Roger and Me" and longtime thorn in the side of corporate America, will apparently be speaking up for chickens this Wednesday evening (tonight!), according to trailers of his cable-tv show "The Awful Truth."

Shown dressed in a chicken costume asking questions in the lobby of a factory farm and poking around the area where the chickens are kept in cages, he appears intent on exposing "The awful truth" about the lives factory-farmed chickens really lead. You may want to tune in to find out what he's up to. "The Awful Truth" airs on the cable channel Bravo at 10:30 eastern time. Be sure to check your local listings.
