Re: Supermarket bacon rant.
One advantage of being a vegetarian is not dealing with the meat that gets pedaled to us at the local supermarket. Some of it is very good, but for me the biggest issue is the disassociation between the product and the consumer. I have no idea where that meat is from or how the animal was handled - except in limited cases like limited, local produce. That's why I don't eat meat any more and why (when I started shopping for myself after leaving home) I rarely bought meat and if I did, always tried to get high quality meat.
