Meatless Fridays Are Here! (At Least in England and Wales)

No more of this on Fridays in England and Wales!
For the first time in decades, Catholics in England and Wales are required to abstain from meat.  This past Friday, the 16th, was the first day for the newly restored mandatory discipline.  I have not heard that the earth opened up, or that the streets were choked with corpses, or that the sky caved in.  On Friday, September 16th, nobody died of mandatory abstinence.  If they failed to die in England and Wales, the odds are pretty good they won't die anywhere else.

Don't forget to vote in the Victory sidebar poll on meatless Fridays!

    You forget: the English can keep going on tea and marmite.
    Cousins can't.
