It's not that, actually.  I don't really care what people eat or why, 
and I do understand their ethical concerns, although I don't agree with 
them.  What bugs me is that vegans often seem to have the most 
highly-developed senses of entitlement of any identifiable group of 
people with food issues.

That too.  Such a waste.  (Generally, though, we have very good eaters 
here-- I've served fairly rare tuna at an event and it all got gobbled up).
