Meateaters met with protest

Published Oct. 1, 2005

Above, Franklin Dean, left, and Garrett Velez discuss the merits of eating meat Thursday outside the McDonald's at Fowler and Nebraska avenues in Tampa. Members of People Protecting the Rights of Animals, at right, recognized the Great American Meatout with signs and costumes. Dean and his daughter have founded a counter organization, Society for the Uplifting and Equalization of Meat Eaters, or SUEME. Their motto, he says, is "I eat meat, so sue me."
