Quote of the Day: If These Peas Could Talk...Should We Eat Them?

"Being disconcerted by a single pea to the point of unrest is analogous to the ethical obsession, untranslatable into the language of moral axioms and principles of righteousness. Such ethics do not dictate how to treat the specimen of Pisumsativum, or any other plant, but they do urge us to respond, each time anew, to the question of how, in thinking and eating, to say “yes” to plants."

-A quote from an NY Times Opinionator piece that discusses the ethics of eating peas since they can communicate with each other. [NYT]
