Chime in, and because this article is in the magazine issue dated March 23, write a letter to letters@newsweek.com. Did you see that Newsweek editor David Noonan went vegan (see " I Can't Believe I'm Still a Vegan ")? He clearly needs a bit of encouragement as he finds it "sort of a pain in the ass. And kind of boring, too." But congratulations to Noonan for doing it and writing about it and sticking with it!

Walrus in Trouble Too

I'm very proud of supporting Defenders because I think they do great work and they have a really good magazine too. I'm finally getting caught up on some reading and came across this article in the Defenders of Wildlife wildlife. Very depressing sometimes though. The summer issue had a good article about walruses. Surprisingly, they are overlooked in discussions of Arctic species threatened by global warming. We tend to talk about penguins and polar bears, but these guys are important too.

On Mainstreaming Veganism

Animal Person

I don't pay as much attention as I should by watching regular television networks or reading newspapers or magazines that reflect the zeitgeist, but I do get snippets. All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

Ocean Advocacy and Animal Rights

I was reading Ocean Conservancy's magazine today. We support two ocean protection organizations: People for Puget Sound (local) and the Ocean Conservancy. For the past couple of issues I've read, it has had a "sustainable seafood recipe." I understand that they are trying to encourage people to eat fish and other marine life that are not part of a collapsing fishery. The purpose is to protect ocean species as a whole. I'm not sure how this fits into my support of animal rights though.

The Splendor of Birds and National Geographic: a Book Review

In the e-era now, print magazines are going the way of the Ivory-billed Woodpecker.

These numbers are substantially higher than ABA membership or magazine subscribers, suggesting a higher number of birders. Jason A. Crotty is a birder and lawyer living in Portland, Oregon.
