Caught some of the HBO Bryant Gumbel show with Bernard Goldberg doing a disturbing expose on horse racing. I knew about the doping of horses and some of the publicized deaths but heard some shocking yearly numbers at various tracks. I'm looking for something published as so many do not have HBO.

https://www.hbo.com/real-sports-with-bryant-gumbel The episode is

Raced to Death Bernard Goldberg examines why thousands of horses die while racing in the United States every year.

Here's press on Santa Anita There was also a NYT article citing 29 deaths and these are all recent.

For everyone who hasn't been happy with veggie burgers, this is supposed to be closer to the real thing.

 Beyond burgers are great! I haven’t tried their sausage yet.

Love veggie burgers. Not as a substitute for hamburgers but as their own entrees.

 Morningstar has sausage  crumbles that are great in a sauce but they rarely carry them in Shoprite. They have the regular beef like crumbles. Cool for chili.

 Which do you like. I finished Monringstar's  and tonight had Boca Burgers but didn't like these as well. They seemed breaded. Not the way I remember them.

I try to avoid binging on pasta, my go to comfort food. I'm growing basil in my garden for pesto. Yum.

I really like these veggie masala burgers they have at Trader Joe’s. They are in no way meant to pass as meat but they make a very tasty meal on a hamburger bun with cheese, red onion, pickles and condiments.

 I tried them once. I doubt I remember what meat tastes like so I'm pretty easy to please. I'm a regular at TJs so I explore quite a bit. They have pretty good produce at fair prices.

 They had a wicked carrot juice with turmeric and pepper. Wow. I decided it would be a great substitute for Bloody Mary mix. I think mixed with vodka I could invent a new drink A Bugs Bunny!

I had planned on the next post being a positive one. Most animal advocates like myself, turn off so many good people who do not want to hear sad things. Got it but.....

This bear deserves his story to be told.

Although this story is disturbing, I'll counter it with a happy ending story about another elephant named Nosey.

This is the happy ending for Nosey and the law that changed NJs treatment of elephants, thanks to Sen. Lesniak.

Admittedly the title of this article, is going to annoy a lot of people but, it has been updated for accuracy and has a great deal of interesting stats on meat's impact on the environment. As almost everyone on this board is looking for a candidate who has a plan to combat climate change, here are a few suggestions, one is a tax on the products causing significant harm. And if you come away with the idea that you are not ready to give up being a carnivore, you might considering limiting your consumption.
