~:h4P%G%vW4T0d0    In a couple of months, I rediscovered my love for meat. Sausages, steak, buffalo wings, crab legs, brisket, pork dumplings, those chicken legs served at Dim Sum. Others craved chocolate or cheesecake; I had a "meat tooth."

v/C}C#Z7|5VZ_/r q0    "Dominion" is a horrible, wonderful, important book. It is horrible in its subject, a half-reportorial, half-philosophical examination of some of the most repugnant things that human beings do to animals, notably keeping them in the factory farms that have taken over the business of supplying America's insatiable meat tooth.
