The Food & Dining section of the NY Times talks goats, fainting goats. And if you want these goats to live, eat them. That’s right, eat them to save them.

Comment of the Week
Amen to that! I have recently developed an allergy to mascara and I’m learning to like my face without a lot of makeup (this from a 36 year old former teenage goth queen). I only wear concealer and lipstick most of the time, and I’m seeing beauty in myself that I never saw before simply from not being conditioned to expect the look of makeup.
It’s most definitely a reflection of emotional security and self-love more than anything else. The more wisdom I get under my belt, the less crap I put on my face.
