From the scrapbook of potential ‘gotchas’

Re: “Exposing a carnivore in vegan’s clothing”, Have Your Say, February 15.

Eric Bahrt excoriates Simon Ordsall for attacking vegans because Ordsall himself claimed to be a vegetarian in a letter to this column just last year. Does Bahrt save clippings of every letter just so he can score “gotcha” points like this? If so, he needs to get himself a life.

It is just possible that Ordsall changed his mind since last year and decided that life without cheeseburgers is not a life worth living. Bahrt fails to consider this possibility. 

He also disappoints connoisseurs of his rhetoric (like me) by failing to end his latest letter with his customary rant against fools and hypocrites. Time to up your game, mate!
