Eric Bahrt says some guy called Jonas Tombaugh had a letter published in The Nation specifically referring to meat eaters and that Dr Frank did as well.

He went on to ask, considering how many letters he gets published, what the odds were that both people just happened to respond to that particular letter on the same day three weeks later.

It’s because it’s the editor, not the writer, who decides when or if stuff makes it onto the letters page, stupid. But maybe it’s just me who thinks it’s obvious. Come down to the Red Lion for a friendly beer, Eric, and let’s talk about it.
