Compelling reasons to go vegan

Tuesday, September 25, 2018

As “The Big Bang Theory” CBS juggernaut rolls into a record 12th season on Sept. 24, most of the gang exploring mysteries of the universe have gone vegan, opting for plant-based eating.

Leading actress Kaley Cuoco (Penny) also campaigns against Canadian slaughter of baby seals. Mayim Bialik (Amy) and Kunal Ayyar (Raj) are asking the U.S. to join European Union in ending cruel cosmetic testing on animals. Johnny Galecki (Leonard) did it for personal health.

Dozens of other celebrity entertainers have gone vegan in recent years. They include Casey Affleck, Pamela Anderson, Alec Baldwin, Bob Barker, Beyonce, James Cameron, Jessica Chastain, Miley Cyrus, Ellen DeGeneres, Emily Deschanel, Peter Dinklage, Sara Gilbert, Ariana Grande, Daryl Hannah, Woody Harrelson, Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lopez, Madonna, Tobey Maguire, Demi Moore, Michelle Pfeiffer, Joaquin Phoenix, Brad Pitt, Natalie Portman, Alicia Silverstone and Stevie Wonder.

Most seek to avoid oppressing and killing animals. Some look to reduce their risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, stroke and cancer. Still others care about the devastating impacts of animal agriculture on climate change, water quality and wildlife habitats.

Compelling reasons for every one of us, as we get ready for The Big Bang Theory #12!

“An imperial presidency is dangerous for everyone … I don’t think we are going to get anything across the president’s desk that will pass a veto but I do think we should put it on his desk and let him know that the elected officials of Congress, Republicans and Democrats…

As I read the heartbreaking news about all the children that have been sexually abused through decades and decades by Catholic priests, can anyone explain to me what punishment have they received? Are any of them behind bars like a person in the general public would be? What about the bishops, etc.,…

Look around you: This is what happens when an autocrat becomes president of a democratic republic. Our accidental “king”:

■ Ignores our national/foreign policy experts.

■ Gives aid and cover to another autocrat who murders dissenters, conquers other nations, and covertly…

As a student at a large university, safety is always a priority to me and my family. While it is hard to protect a campus where people have access to come and go, it is not so far fetched to take measures to protect K-12 school systems considering they are smaller and more controlled.

While adding…

No, Mr. Baldree (Public Forum, Feb. 17), “We the People” did not elect the Donald. “You, the 3 million-plus fewer voters than voted for Mrs. Clinton,” put this running national joke and “minority” president in the White House.

And no, Mr. Baldree, after Mrs.…

We as a community paid tribute to a true American politician — a man who served God, family and community. As the wife of a reservist currently serving his eighth tour, I am extremely grateful to have had Rep. Walter Jones in office.

As I reflect on my time with Congressman Jones, my thoughts are with his family, which to me also includes his staff. I had the honor of working for Congressman Jones for 14 years and I watched him up close serving the people of the 3rd District.

Although important, what has been shared over the…

Pitt County Schools is moving forward with efforts to make local schools more secure after introducing measures in May 2018. A letter was sent out Feb. 13 from Superintendent Ethan Lenker to parents to inform them of the progress made.

I have read the letter and there are 12 security additions…

The construction of an apartment complex will be possible thanks to a rezoning of Fire Tower Road. That sounds good on the surface, and it has many benefits, but it ignores the long-term issues — traffic and crowding.

Greenville city planning has more than likely pondered these issues,…
