"I'm not even an atheist so much as I am an anti-theist; I not only maintain that all religions are versions of the same untruth, but I hold that the influence of churches, and the effect of religious belief, is positively harmful." - Christopher Hitchens in Letters to a Young Contrarian.

"When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying the cross." - Sinclair Lewis

“Religion has ever been anti-human, anti-women, anti-life, anti-peace, anti-reason, and anti-science. The god idea has been detrimental not only to humankind, but to the earth. It is time now for reason, education, and science to take over.” - Madalyn Murray O'Hair

Eòin - Painter and government employee. Writer, photographer, pitbull wrangler, voracious devourer of books and films and knowledge, muggle, gardener, hesitant self-taught cook, and brave little traveler. People say I should have been an archivist of some sort. I think I should have been a paleontologist - I’d be out digging right now. I have always had rescue dogs and you can see two of them throughout these pages.

Recently divorced after fifteen years. Still figuring out the life that follows. Over three decades, I lived in Seattle, San Francisco, and then Manhattan - now I make my home in rural New England. I like the quiet. I like the forest. I like snow in the winter. I like growing my own broccoli rabe. I like buying fresh, local goat's milk cheese.

It’s a good step in the right direction towards 1) informing people of the contents of their food and 2) holding manufacturers to a higher level of honesty. Combining the total amount of sugar is great, as is red print for high percentages.
At the same time, The US Department of Agriculture has recently determined that the number of working-age adults who look at nutritional labeling has risen to a whopping 42 percent in recent years.
