TO MESSRS. LABASH AND Wooster (“Meat Cleavers,” The District Line, 3/24; The Mail, 4/7): Thanks for entertaining us with your cute little tirades.

As a vegetarian with no particular interest in rescuing the meat animals we’ve domesticated for our use, I say to the two of you, dig in! Eat all the putrefying animal flesh your colons can hold.

But if a surgeon has to punch a hole in your suppurating gut to let the shit run out, don’t ask the rest of us to help pay for it. Promise?
