Dr. Krauthammer writes for for The Washington Post and his essays are “a kind of exotic indulgence” to use his own phrase. He uses words the way Andrea Bocelli uses songs, or B.B. King used a guitar- all masters of their craft.
Most of his pieces are serious and somber, understandable considering that he tackles such dark subjects as terrorism, war, government corruption, and social injustice. But occasionally he takes a lighter approach to subjects which are important on a different level.
Such is this piece in which he predicts the demise of meat-eating, most likely for economic reasons. But medical studies do suggest vegetarian diets are healthier, may lower the risk of colon cancer, and may promote weight loss better than other diets.
This article may make you laugh, applaud, growl, or just dismiss the whole thing as irrelevant. But might we all agree on one point?
“One measure of human moral progress-amid and despite the savageries we visit upon each other-is how we treat the innocent in our care. ”Dr. Charles Krauthammer
