Frank came up with a good definition for “flexitarian.” Flexitarians
are those who think that it is O.K. to eat (or wear or use) the products

It never ceases to amaze me the lengths that people will go to in
order to rationalize their behavior. I guess one of the reasons so many
people say, “Don’t tell me. I don’t want to know,” when it comes to
