Similar to the list of celebrity Buddhists, some of these on the list are there on flimsy evidence, both the famous and infamous.

The Dalai Lama eats meat occasionally.

There is about an equal amount of evidence that Hitler was a vegetarian as there is for him not being a vegetarian (his chef reported that he loved to eat meat, for example and other reports indicate that he dabbled with healthy eating for longevity purposes).

Mike Tyson (former heavy weight champion in Boxing and Las Vegas resident) is definitely a vegan. (He chewed off part of on an opponent's ear, but didn't swallow.)

Dear David,
Oh yes..that's what I think..Dalai Lama can't choose food..he's a monk.
Mike Tyson the TATTOO MAN is wierd/crazy.

I'm surprised that Billy Idol is a vegan : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NfRn7Mp5L0k

Having been a healthy vegetarian for decades, I can see so many positives in the vegetarian lifestyle - health, environmental, financial etc. - and I cannot see any positives to eating other sentient beings. Just because some vegetarians are basically evil, does not reflect on the lifestyle. Remember, many vegetarians adhere to the lifestyle not out of compassion toward other living creatures, but because they will benefit in some way.

What is the downside? How can the killing and eating of our fellow creatures ever be a good thing?

I, personally, have benefited in so many ways from abstaining from eating meat, poultry, fish etc. I am grateful that I was able to observe a slaughter house when I was young and impressionable. It changed my life for the better.
