"Meat Free Monday" by Paul McCartney

Paul McCartney wants you to bow to the altar of health and environmentalism, and observe the Meat Free Monday. Homer Simpson notably exclaimed once upon a time: "Rock stars... is there anything they don't know?"

Dude, you were cool and cutting-edge 45 years ago, and that was mostly by piggybacking on John Lennon. Now you wanna do the same with Bono - he may be an economic ignoramus too, but at least he was mostly original. Go spoon with Al Gore.

I hereby announce and begin promoting Paul McCartney Free Decade.

Another moment of sheer brilliance from the U.S. Congress - we can get more people to visit the USA by... charging them $10 each in order to tell them to do so. Words fail me.
