You're not kidding--those ARMS!!

Thanks for the info. I'm always glad to hear when someone of athletic prominence is vegan or vegetarian--it makes those naysayers have to think twice, you know? :)

Thanks for the heads up. This makes me support her seven fold :)

It's easier to argument with facts like these.

She is awesome.

She actually won Bronze, but had a goal of just getting on the podium, which she did.

The other two medals she has are from previous olympics.

I tried to count them up but I kept losing track. I think she has at least 20 gold medals over her career. She and her partner retired on Wednesday.

Good for him!

I cannot believe it's been over 30 years since I learned about the Asian dog [and cat] meat industry with its horrific cruelty and yet it STILL goes on today. Incredible. What is wrong with those people? (Of course, I could...and often do!...ask the same of anyone else who eats the flesh of other sentient beings.)

Well, It's a cultural thing. They don't see that dogs are different from chickens or pigs. Oh. Come to think of it. I don't see them as different either. But then I don't each chicken or pigs either.
