Dear Reader, I started LouisvilleVegetarian.com about two years ago as a way to support restaurants, local growers, and local vegetarians. I am now very busy with other projects.

You have been known to box your entree and then order dessert.
You remember the margarine that calls itself, "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter"? It doesn't taste like butter, it tastes like petroleum.

"Are you ready for me to take your plate," the waiter asked when I had three bites of vegetables left. "Dude, live to see another day!
