On Eggs and Polar Bears
Did you see that Catherine Price of The New York Times "Sort[ed] Through the Claims of the Boastful Egg" for us last week, then Tara Parker-Hope "Unscrambl[ed] the Egg" a couple of days later? Parker-Hope writes:
And what about “cage free” — that sounds like a pretty happy bird to me. As it turns out, a cage-free chicken is kept out of the cage, but it doesn’t necessarily go outside. And a “free range” egg-layer isn’t necessarily roaming the range either. So what’s the term to look for if you want eggs from a happy, free-living bird? ” Look for “animal welfare approved,” a new label by the Animal Welfare Institute that is given only to independent family farmers.
Glad that’s all cleared up.
Not so funny was a Today Show segment yesterday that included women who were undecided and (because they?) liked the idea of Sarah Palin. I have just one question: If you like the idea of Sarah Palin, why are you undecided? She’s not undecided at all about what she wants for this country. Either you want what she wants or you don’t, no?
I don’t get it.
