FB, people can honor or have respect for animals that die for our food and still desire and enjoy Fois Gras. I cannot speculate on the 100 people at Trotters, other than to say some of them probaby do and some don't. It's a personal thing. But I think more people should honor the animals that die for them, and of course I have posted lots here and elsewhere on my beliefs about more humane slaughtering of animals. That would be a step to honor them better. Some of course believe that no slaughtering or raising animals for food can be humane. It's another topic altogether.
i cannot disagree with you here, leslie.
but respect and honour can be silent, you know. empty vessels make more noise and all that. i am just saying that when one trumpets one's professed respect loudly and crudely, it makes me all wary of the self congratulatary tone..you know?
