back issues


November 2003


The past few issues of Satya have covered some pretty intense topics, so we thought we’d lighten things up a bit with some wine and beer—you know, get into a celebratory mood as the holidays approach.

Well, little did we know that when you scratch the surface, there are deep issues involved (as with everything in life): organic, sustainably-grown and non-vegetarian ingredients; local brewers; small, independent vintners and distributors, etc.

In this issue, we present the research we’ve gathered and introduce you to some of the people behind the great wines and brews that are available. Hopefully you’ll give them a try or seek others out to enjoy as well.

On the Horizon
And, as some of you may have noticed, we have recently been falling further and further behind schedule. We want readers to be able to expect Satya to hit the streets and arrive at their doorstep during the first week of the month. So, we decided to make two double issues: this issue, November/December, and January/February. In March, we will return to our monthly format and be back on track.

January/February will explore the different issues surrounding companion animals, including shelter systems and adoptions, language used to discuss them, vegetarian cat and dog foods, and exotic “pets” (like big cats and reptiles). March will feature original essays from our readership on violence and activism. (Please note, we will be accepting essays until January 15th. Click here to learn more.)

As always, we welcome your feedback and suggestions.

From all of us at Satya, we wish you a lovely holiday season and a peaceful new year. Bottoms up!
