From ANIMAL PEOPLE, April 2002:
WASHINGTON D.C.–Is Rick Berman preparing to become the U.S.
voice of dog-and-cat-meat restauranteurs?
Berman did not answer ANIMAL PEOPLE when on March 1 we asked
him, but his political history and recent activities seem to lean in
“A Washington lawyer and lobbyist who has represented the
hospitality industry for more than 25 years,” Berman, 58, “is
executive director of the Guest Choice Network, a D.C.-based
coalition of 30,000 restaurateurs, tavern operators and restaurant
suppliers who want to preserve guilt-free enjoyment,” profiled
Washington Post staff writer Carole Sugarman in November 1999.
