for being vegetarian friendly, this according to PETA (a real popular group on this board, I'm sure).

Good to hear, and further supports my contention that the Sox have always represented the liberal, progressive side of Chicago, while the Flubs represent the reactionary state of mind.

This also could lead to a new slogan for Wrigley

GET YOUR COLON CANCER HERE!!!

PETA sucks.

And as for the White Sox being progressive, I agree, they were pinching pennies forever, while others were spending freely. Now, most teams are cheap like our beloved Sox.

As one of the most progressive voices on the PI board, I can say this: I cannot stand PETA. They're awful.

I can't stand PETA either, but at least Susan Carlson mentioned that when she was interviewing a chef from the ballpark this morning. She was happy...she's a vegetarian.

What's so progressive about PETA? They basically want to force people not to eat meat- in other words tell people how to live their lives. Not exactly the promotion of freedom one would associate with progressive politics.

Did anyone see Pen and Teller's Bull**** show on Showtime about PETA?

Forcing people to pay exorbitant taxes to fund the utopia of others...now that's the promotion of freedom!

Everyone who supports PETA should have to watch Penn and Teller's episode on them. Heck, PETA isn't that far off from Al Queda and Bin Laden.

When a PETA representative was interviewed, he only had good things to say about what we offer for food. I'm not saying I like the organization, but this guy wasn't trying to get them to stop selling hotdogs, although I'm sure he would like it if we did. He was just positive to the fact that we offer an alternative to the fans. I have no problem with an alternative, and the fact that they commended us for it, only speaks well of the Sox. I for one enjoy any good publicity, even if it's about our food. If PETA likes what we've done, all the better they say so.

I'm not sure how you got the message that I think some people shoud pay high taxes to fund other's lifestyles- I don't think people should have to pay any income taxes at all. I will say this: If PETA had their way, meat consumption would be taxed to the point where no one could afford it.

Telling people they can't eat meat is something else.

I don't like PETA either, but that is ridiculous. Penn & Teller haven't been much less subjective lately.

Anyway, I'm glad they have the veggie burgers, because I'm vegetarian, and they're actually not bad.

I pay "exorbitant" taxes for others' utopia of war...now that's the promotion of freedom!

I didn't say being a vegetarian is wrong or bad. If that's what you wish to practice, it's none of my business. I'm half-Indian and most of my relatives on that side are vegetarians and perfectly healthy. I'm only saying that PETA would like to force their beliefs on others, not that all vegetarians do. Most vegetarians probably couldn't care less what other people eat.

It was just Campbell assessment of what the progressive movement means.

Yeah, screw PETA.

When I go to the Cell the only food on my mind is a lot of beer and a lot of hot dogs or polish.
