I know that Vegan Outreach members don't need to be convinced (or reminded) of the horrors of modern agribusiness. We each know that for every animal rescued, for every investigation released, billions of animals suffer and die, unnamed, unseen, and uncomforted.
But it is worth thanking people like Mark Bittman for helping bring these horrors to more people; it is also sometimes useful to post one of the countless investigations to boards, friends, etc.
More on this on another day; suffice to say -- this is why our efforts require the utmost urgency. Our work is both a tribute to the forgotten and the best way to create the compassionate world we all desire.
