the ethics of eating

Mark and I are going to hear this lecture at Georgetown on Thursday night. I'm reading The Omnivore's Dilemma now (as the other two Tarts already have), so this should tie in nicely. And I'm not Catholic, but I'm intrigued that there's going to be a Catholic angle to this. We'll see what that's about. I'll post a report later.

Sounds like it should be interesting, Tara. I'll look forward to the report.

Oh, and speaking of The Omnivore's Dilemma: if you guys come visit me, we can take a field trip to Polyface Farm! I believe it's about an hour from the DC metro area.

I want to find out where I can get my hands on some of those Polyface eggs. I know they do some DC-area farmers' markets -- I'm just having a hard time finding out exactly where. (On his website, Joel Salatin makes a big point of NOT promoting his products.) I know by fixating on Polyface in particular, I'm sort of missing the point of getting plugged into my local "foodshed," but I can't help it. I'm a bit starstruck. :) I wanna see those rich orange yolks I've been reading about!

Yay, happy chickens.
