Across the internet: a selection from the past week

Written by Glenn on November 28th, 2009

This past week is full of Thanksgiving-related posts and news, since Thursday was American Thanksgiving. Probably the most exciting Thanksgiving development was Martha Stewart’s Vegetarian Thanksgiving. With Martha Stewart and Ellen both championing the end of factory farming and a move towards vegetarianism and veganism, there might just be hope for the future.
