Letter: Hunter appreciates vegans keeping meat prices down

Dear Editor,

Patricia Tallman may not be morally deficient like us hunters [Hunters deficient, June 3 Letters, Langley Advance], but her education is deficient. Pythagoras never wrote anything that survived the destruction of his school in Sicily. The only thing we got left is The Golden Verses of Pythagoras. I’ve read many translations, and nowhere is the quotation in her letter mentioned.

She kind of surprised me. I thought it was Thanksgiving already, and this was her usual “save the turkeys” letter. Now what is she going to send to the editor?

By the way, I am very thankful to all vegans or vegetarians. Without them, the price of meat would be astronomical. Enjoy your toffurkey in October.

George Blachuras, Langley

[Editor’s Note: The quote referenced by Ms. Tallman is listed in The Golden Verses of Pythagoras.]
