Lou Gehrig's Disease

Lou Gehrig was part of a
German family. His mother
fed him, long after he was
an adult, bratwurst, many sausages,
braunschweiger (made from livers) ,
frankfurters, hamburgers,
Schweinebraten (made from pig flesh) .

Perhaps the sausages and hot dogs
were in 'natural casings'... the actual
intestinal links of the murdered

He got sick over time from eating animals
and now people are asked to
give money for torture of animals
to an organization, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) which doesn't
warn people not to eat animals.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
