How James Cromwell Can Save Vermont From an ‘American Horror Story’

American Horror Story’s James Cromwell went to school in Vermont. And now the respected actor and vegan wants to share his knowledge with his former state.

James is writing to Governor Peter Shumlin urging him to switch the state drink from cows’ milk to apple cider. Why? As the Emmy winner says in his letter: Cows’ milk contributes to global warming, is linked to cancer, diabetes, obesity and other health crises—and is cruel to animals. James goes on: “Apple cider, on the other hand, is energy efficient, sustainable, supportive of one of Vermont’s top agricultural products, and a contributing factor in the success of the state’s growing tourism industry.”

It seems like a no-brainer. The decision would, as James put it, “make Vermont a trendsetter in environmental, health, and ethical reform.” And it would make the state the apple of every compassionate person’s eye.
