    On a different note, isn’t it somewhat impossible that we’d win? Just by the shear size of our school in comparison to these huge institutions (a lot of them state schools), if they were making a quarter of the effort BA was making they’d be able to get a much larger voting population.

    So, there are a few reasons I am deeply skeptical of this contest. First: I’m guessing most vegetarian students have eaten primarily at their own school, and maybe a few times at other schools, so there’s really no grounds on which to judge the comparative quality. Secondly, and probably much more importantly, it is clear that the main lobby in this campaign is Bon Appetite. They’ve printed up signs and stickers (which we are paying for through our meal plan), and today were literally trying to buy my vote my giving me free coffee at Pi. I think that BA is definitely looking for (probably unearned) praise. Protect the public interest against food service lobbying. Make BA earn a reputation by making vegetarian food that students actually praise. Vote against Wesleyan.

    Peta arent militant extremists. They arent even extremist, when you consider the measures that some animal rights activists. This is where animal rights people get frustrated with, and even anti-, peta.They are, however, very good at making animal rights more visible. I think this is where people who are not interested in animal rights get frustrated with peta.
