Today, in between moving the sheep back to Virginia from their West Virginia winter vacation, making a second cup of coffee and patching a section of dilapidated wire fence, I thought about this question, currently being posed by the N.Y. Times: Is It Ethical To Eat Meat? Here’s my response. Let me know what you think.
In the meantime, I’ve just finished the book proposal for Hayseeds, 62 pages of market analysis, a like-minded bibliography, and 31 individual chapter summaries among other things.
Rather like a Master’s thesis, I’ve decided, without the filigreed Latin and sheepskin at the end of the journey…
A big back log of movies to be made, now that the proposal is complete. Also, a new blog over at www.smithmeadows.com about my friend Jimmy Hogge, the Chesapeake Bay fisherman who passed away this week. God speed, Jimmy.
Currently reading Alice Munro’s Too Much Happiness, as well as David Sedaris’ When You Are Engulfed By Flames. They do a nice job of balancing each other out.
