    This is why I ditched my meal plan as soon as I could. I never could trust the campus food...(although back then i was vegan....)
    That being said, I never would have considered their choice to limit my options "an attack on liberty."

    It's probably because I am what is generally refered to in layman's terms as a dick that stuff like this bothers the hell out of me. Meatless Mondays? Knock yourself out but I have a mother - she isn't Bowdoin College, or John's Hopkins, or the USDA, or Michelle Obama. I do not need a nanny to watch what I eat. If they want a conversation then great. I am all about talking. But do you think we are going to talk about not eating meat one day by forcing me not to eat meat one day...um...no.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    What the F&#* is a decorum? - Mr. Anthony

    The options included cheese ravioli, sesame and cashew rice noodles, spicy black bean burgers, African vegetable stew, cheese and bean quesadillas, and a stir fry of tofu, broccoli and cashews.
    Let me guess, the stew had potatoes in it?

    if you want to hand out literature and try to "educate" me, then go right ahead. i don't have to agree with you, so don't try to force me to eat your way.

    I'm another higher ed worker. This sort of crap drives me up a wall, but is unfortunately all too common in my circles.

    From the article:
    Dozens of students held an impromptu barbecue outside one facility in protest. Two other students sold McDonald’s cheeseburgers while simultaneously raising funds for a local humane society. Another group of students ate buckets of Kentucky Fried Chicken inside the dining hall.

    Does Meatless Mondays mean I get eggs for breakfast, Eggsalad for lunch and a fritatta for dinner? Hopefully cooked in A vat of bacon fat!

    I'm a devote liberal / animal lover so I was a little more than disgusted at the narrow mindedness of these students. This isn't a liberal vs. conservative issue or a animal lover vs. animal hater issue, this is a matter of nutrition and evolution. The need for protein wasn't mentioned at all.
