I recently wrote a column about our relationship with animals, inspired by the Michael Vick dogfighting scandal. Given my extreme affection for animals, I received a few e-mails asking how I can eat meat.
I do not have a good answer, although it seems clear to me that raising animals for food is different from raising them to destroy one another to placate humans' appetite for violence. Whether the life circumstances of the typical animal raised for food are more agreeable than a dog's life in Vick's kennel is something others can debate.

Fair warning: The site is pretty raunchy generally, so if indelicate language makes you lightheaded, you might not want to check this out: "Us and Them".
