Beatles: Paul Asks for Meat-Free Monday, Plus It’s George Harrison Week


I dutifully report all Beatle news: Paul McCartney beseeches us to honor Meat Free Monday. Paul is a vegetarian (as was his devoted wife Linda). You don’t have to be a vegetarian to do Meat Free Monday. Actually, we’d all be better off with Meat Free Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
Here’s his video explaining the urgency:

Also, it’s George Harrison week. Apple/Capitol has boxed up George’s Apple albums including “All Things Must Pass” and “Living in the Material World.” They’re all remastered with lots of cool art. This week on Conan O’Brien, Paul Simon, Dhani Harrison and others sing George’s best songs as a tribute to him. “All Things Must Pass” is one of the great classic albums of all time, so it’s worth it. A nice holiday or birthday gift for any Beatle fan!
