Meanwhile, from the yuppie rabbit hutches of Park Slope, Brooklyn:
When I thought it was just a passive aggressive manifesto of smug vegetarianism, I was happy to let Jonathan Safran Foer's new book, Eating Animals go by with nary a mention.
But then I saw the YouTube trailer for the book [the what where?? yes.], which contains this unignorable line:
"You know, the book, in a way, more than anything, is about taking my imminent fatherhood seriously."
Which turns out to have brought down a pile of hyperbolic snipe on dads' heads from The Daily Beast, the likes of which have not been seen since the debut of Neal Pollack's, Michael Lewis's, and Michael Chabon's dadbooks.
In other words, the cycle of life.
