The article on $20 dining for two ("Cheap Eats," July 26) was a big disappointment. Meat, meat and more meat throughout the reviews; even, "you can see and smell the long skewers of meat being turned on the grill." I barely recognize the Journal anymore. Instead of taking leadership, you heartily embrace stupid, retro-evolutionary, ecologically unsustainable trends such as the current meat craze.
I'm not sure what the Journal does stand for these days, but you try hard to show what you don't: vegetarianism, animal activism, environmental consciousness. Probably in homage to the almighty dollar (ad revenue), you bend over backward to prove you aren't mere hippies, but are tough, hard-nosed business people. If you're too mainstream and commercial to be the underground or alternative press, then what are you??Enjoy the cholesterol and karma, folks, you're earning it.
