Likes: politics, sports, monkeys, my dogs, politeness, intelligence, documentaries, good grammar, those who can hold their own in a political/philosophical debate, newspapers and occasionally, a highly caloric dessert. Dislikes - um, just the opposite of the above. Oh and people that flash the peace sign in photos.
I value being compassionate to others, including animals. I am a strong advocate (but not a nut) for being kind to animals (i.e. petitioning for significantly better treatment of factory farm animals). I don't eat beef or pork, rarely chicken, sometimes fish/seafood, but what you eat is up to you, of course.
