About the author

I am the author, co-author, secondary-author, ghost-author, and non-author of articles, speeches, book chapters, and even entire books! The most recent can be found at LosingMyReligions.net. Currently, I am President of One Step for Animals; previously, I was shitcanned from so many nonprofits that we can’t list them all here. Before my unfortunate encounter with activism, I was an aerospace engineer who wanted to work for NASA (to impress Carl Sagan). My hobbies include photography, almost dying, and {REDACTED}. I live in Tucson with my soulmate and reluctant editor Anne, along with the occasional snake and scorpion.

Reading Facebook

The schism noted here
is very apparent in Facebook comments. Whenever there is news -- a new product, business, law, or reform, you get two tribes.

The first says "I" and "vegan." E.g., "I wouldn't eat that!" "That is not vegan!"

The second says "people" and "animals." "That might really get more people to consider...." "That will reduce / prevent animal suffering."

And one tribe uses a lot more exclamation marks.

PS: Sorry I'll miss everyone at the conference in DC. Maybe I'll be allowed to speak at some point in the future, but I'm not holding my breath.
