Re: “Think You Know Izakaya?

I'm shocked that a new restaurant would open with foie gras on the menu, considering that in several months it will be illegal in the entire state of CA -- and I'm shocked that the East Bay Express food writer so casually described it as one of the items served. How does a restaurant open in as progressive a town as Berkeley and not realize that they would be alienating many potential customers by serving animal cruelty?

Re: “Keeping Goats in Oakland

There have also been an increasing number of stray goats turning up at the Oakland Animal Shelter in the past 2 years- please consider whether a goat is really right for you before bringing one home.

This article also does not mention that the ONLY way a goat will produce milk is if she is pregnant, or has recently given birth (also true for cows, or humans). This raises the question of what you plan to do with a new calf each year. Those interviewed in this article clearly chose to eat their new calf. Goats can live 8-16 years - killing a six-month old baby is not a "good life," any way you slice it.

You might consider almond milk, rice milk, or soy milk instead - cholesterol & lactose free, and no animals died to produce the milk. You can make these inexpensively at home.
