Today's Express reports Carla Lane feels that her best friend, Linda McCartney, would have been "respectful" and "genuinely supportive" of Heather's new cook book project (see November 8). The article quotes Ms. Lane as saying:"Linda had a lot of respect for anyone who cared for animals. Regardless of the fact Heather is now Paul's wife, Linda would have supported her decision to promote vegetarian cooking. A lot of people will say Heather is copying Linda but she's not - I know she loves animals. We are not close friends but I have spent time with her and Paul and it is clear she is a compassionate woman. She is not stupid enough just to follow in Linda's footsteps unthinkingly."Carla feels that Heather has "probably been influenced by Paul" and is pleased that she has been "pulled towards Paul and Linda's passion for animals". Ms. Lane adds:"I would have expected her to have done something different from Linda. It would have been nice if she'd done something that is unique to her. But what matters, essentially, is that she is helping animals."
