Re: [anthroposophy_tomorrow] Re: Meat-eating in the light of anthroposophy
- I read that the Dalai Lama has said he tried to give up meat but
constitutionally he could not. He would get ill and his Drs. advised him
to eat meat...

- But you win the "Rudolf"
(anthropop Oscar) for the worst poem written in the 5th post-Atlantis
I accept that honor. I found that while Tarjei sent a juvenile missive,
I thought, well I would respond in kind. I made as little effort as my
poet pen pal Tarjei and I just wasn't in the mood to be as funny and
full of sarcasm as I should have been. I apparently wasn't on my game,
so I accept this award along with my other trophies for all my other
pitiful performances and hope that there are still sloppy, crappy poets
out there who can scale and overcome my sterling achievements. I look
forward to the contests.
