This is not really a question but more of a heads up...
They were hoping for hundreds of submissions, and they got THOUSANDS. So they had some drones pare down the field to 29, which were judged by the (albeit biased) panel. They honed it down to six. Now the readers get to vote. Of the six, I thought three were worthy of a win. The one with the most votes at the moment is extolling the virtues of test tube meat. We cannot let this happen!
I had a tough time choosing between "This is the deal we've made", and "Sometimes it's more ethical to eat meat than vegetables". I like having this sound argumentation in hand also should I ever need to defend my meat-eating ways.
So, to make this a question, which essay(s) did you like the most?
