As a matter of disclosure, I should admit I've been a vegetarian for 12 years. Although I'm not one to proselytize — hey Ted, your heart attack and colon cancer just leaves more green beans for the rest of us — naturally, I prefer to pick it and grill it, rather than slaughter and sauté it. Yet, even a raving carnivore likes a veggie side dish, and Nugent would probably invite me to dinner — but likely find me too stringy for his palate.
