Vegan Prisoners

Some good news of sorts from my home commonwealth where a federal judge has ruled that a prison must provide a vegan diet for a prisoner based on the Buddhist religious beliefs he developed in prison. Sixteen years ago, the man in question killed his son and beat the boy's mother.

I often read about the difficulty political prisoners have in getting jailers to serve them vegan food. Maybe this could be the first step toward all those nasty ecoterrorists (you know, the dangerous ones who haven't killed or beaten anyone, and declare their love of life rather than property) getting the food they need.
