Well, it is Vanity Fair, I suppose
In the otherwise typically consumptive and celebrity-obsessed May Vanity Fair
, which is a self-described "Green Issue," (Julia Roberts as an eco-warrior? C'mon!) a few welcome names crop up that aren't linked to Hollywood or the Upper West Side, even though they are swamped by the fantastically beautiful or rich and swallowed by the car and perfume ads.
There are even a couple of Lantern bold-face names. Not only is there a brief profile and large photo of Wangari Maathai
, author of The Green Belt Movement
(p. 178) but on p. 82, one Kathy Freston, author of One: Finding Soul Mate Love and Making It Last
says that her current bedside reading is Making Kind Choices
by Ingrid Newkirk
: "It's vital to know that in these crazy times little acts of kindness toward animals really do make a difference. It's a simple and soulful guide on how to be kinder." Amen to that.
