You do not have to be an Indian for vegetarian diet to work? I have a
quite a few friends in Texas who are young men and women - mostly white
anglos who are vegetarians by choice - what we call here ethical vegetarians
-- who do not want to be part of any killing -- and most of them are also
active in the animal rights arena.
Here too the business is booming and new large store is to be opened in
the newest shopping mall.
So the general move is in the direction of more veggies.
