Focus on the crazy, not the veganism.

It's ... surprising, in a skeptics' forum, to find most people making this case an excuse for ranting off on vegans.

Sure, ranting about one's pet peeves is cathartic, and fun, but still.


(Before someone asks, or at least wonders: No, I'm not vegan myself.)
Well said. One of my daughters is vegan, and she is disgusted with this couple, and equally annoyed that veganism is the focus of news reports.
