Some food-related stuff over at Growers and Grocers:

Nice to see they chose a nice, slow method of death prior to shipment.

And something that will make Bookman fall over:

  1. Dude! I just finished reading the essay, “Consider the Lobster” by Davy Fosty Wally, and I am teaching it this fall to my English 309 students. Serendipitous that you discuss it here, or at least have a reference to it? I think not! If you like Wallace, read, A SUPPOSEDLY FUN THING I’LL NEVER DO AGAIN. Great stuff.

    About that grass-fed initiative. . . Looks promising. Just think of it: beef that tastes like, well, beef, and not something that is vaguely reminiscent of beef. Revolutionary!

  2. I am loving Wallace. The “run-on paragraphs” occassionally get to me (I think that’s just me getting lost in the text), but I love the footnote hell he creates. Expanding on a minor point outside of the main text…it’s like providing a “scenic route” option….

    I just finished the lobster essay this morning. I don’t think it’s his best stuff in the collection, but I do like the even=handed way he brings up the pain question (especially considering the article’s original audience) and doesn’t lead them to any closure. He’s tough to beat as a rhetorician.
