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.
Not to be outdone by Food & Dining, the NY Times Business Section talks docs – documentaries about obesity . And who’s funding the latest fat doc? Why, Glaxo, the makers of the explosive-diarrhea weight loss pill, Alli ! No conflict of interest there.

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.
