THOUGHT FOR today, from Jeremy Rifkin's recently published book "Beyond Beef:"
"Moving beyond the beef culture is a revolutionary act, a sign of our willingness to reconstitute ourselves, to make ourselves whole. . . . By doing battle with 'the world steer,' a new generation expresses its sensitivity to the biosphere and its regard for the plight of the poor. By eliminating beef from the human diet, our species takes a significant step toward a new species consciousness, reaching out in a spirit of shared partnership with the bovine. . . ."
The world steer?

Over the years, it has planted more than 100,000 daffodils and dozens of trees around the city. Now it wants to find Baltimore's prettiest gardens.
