I commend the Earth Day Festival for their recycling and composting efforts! But-- what's up with all of the dead animals on sticks??? Even aside from the morality issue of "honoring Mother Earth" by slaughtering, skewering and roasting her animal children en masse, serving meat at an "eco-conscious" event that claims to be promoting sustainability is hypocritical at best! (Come on now, we've all read the research on vegetarianism being a more effective carbon footprint reducer than driving a Prius.) I'm not saying we all have to be vegetarian all of the time, but it seems to me that in truly paying homage to our beloved planet, and in the interest of educating ourselves and others on more earth-friendly habits, we could make the committment to be meat-free just for the weekend. After all, when a vegetarian is hard-pressed to find a meal at Earth Day, something's stupid.
