We try harder.
Our new printing of Why Vegan was recently completed, and backorders are now being filled. Copies of Vegetarian Living are currently unavailable, as the booklet is undergoing a complete overhaul. Look for more details in upcoming issues of Vegan Spam!
Action is needed regarding SB993, which would increase trespassing on farms from an infraction (punishable by a small fine) to a misdemeanor (punishable with up to 6 months in jail). VivaUSA has details.
"People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said today that it would sue the KFC Corporation in Los Angeles on Monday as part of the group's six-month boycott to seek an improvement in the way 700 million chickens are raised and slaughtered every year for the fast-food giant."

Vegan Spam, I wrote:
I got that information from an article posted on IVU-Veg-News. The article had no further information. It has since been brought to my attention that VRG says, "Our jump to 2.8 percent cannot indicate a trend. In our 2000 national Zogby Poll of 968 adults, about 2.5 percent of the population was vegetarian. So, we have some evidence there has been some permanent movement; however, these differences still fall within the margin of error for each poll." So, it seems that we still do not really know if the number of vegetarians has been increasing. (Note: These polls are only of adults 18 years and older.)
