You don’t have to be the President to pardon a turkey

Posted on November 24, 2011 by Nina Casalena, The VRG Blog Editor

A recent article on HLNTV.com explains the history behind the tradition of granting a Presidential pardon to a turkey on Thanksgiving. Here at The Vegetarian Resource Group, we think that’s a fantastic idea! Everyone should do it! For some ideas on what to eat instead, see our article “What Do Vegans And Vegtarians Do For Thanksgiving?

    It’s a lousy idea! Why should a turkey be pardoned? It didn’t do anything wrong to begin with!
