Why We Leaflet

Jon Camp sent this story to accompany the following pictures (click for larger):

At a rest stop in central Illinois, I saw this truck full of chickens bound for slaughter. I walked by it to get some pics. A man standing by a different truck for a freight company yelled out, "After seeing stuff like this, you almost want to go vegetarian." Surprised to hear that, I told him that I was veg. He then let me know that he's cut pretty much all meat from his diet, though he's still working on pork. This has been the result of seeing too many such trucks too close. It goes to show that we never know when we're going to find an unexpected ally.
