Hey, Pig - Yeah, You

Since the HBO special documentary last month, it seems that pigs have suddenly become the cause... du jour. The truth is that most pig farms are pretty "humane," for as far as that goes, and pork is damned tasty.

While perhaps not the cornerstone of Western civilization, pork is certainly one of the most popular meats in the Western world. And, as Richard da Costa writes, "If we are going to eat animals... then we must accept that they must be killed to be eaten."

And while vegetarians - especially vegans - argue we meat-eaters are "base," abusive murderers and so on and on, they're mostly angry because they're dying for a porkchop.
