Michael Pollan has a cool piece in the latest New York Times Magazine, called An Animal’s Place (stupid mandatory login required, cypherpunk98/cypherpunk works for now). In it he talks about factory farming, the animal rights movement, and the various ways in which one can try to combine meat-eating with a moral existence in early twenty-first century America. Cool followup reading I stumbled upon while Googling for the author’s name includes Power Steer, an earlier NYT Magazine piece where the author follows the life of a particular bovine, and factoryfarm.org, where you can arm yourself to take on the CAFOs of the world (that’s “Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation”). Bon appetit.
