Apologies for the lack of Meat of late, but my wife and I had a baby three weeks ago. And Work has me about as busy these days as Rick Santorum staffers trying to click their way into a solution to his Google problem. So, you know, Responsibility.
Thankfully, in the world outside my home, there are others — so called "Friends of Meat" (see at left), even — writing posts well worth reading. So go, browse. Come back to me next week though, dammit. Or I will break up with you in embarrasingly public ways. And the truth will come out.
- You can start over on Twitching Blobs, for a positively Swiftian modest proposal, in response to recent legislative idiocy like the proposed Vagina Virginia ultrasound law.
- Then make your way over to visit BBQ Billy; if you don't know him, you should. Check out the drool-inducing blog. And stay tuned for his brick-and-mortar joint in Brooklyn, where you'll be able to sample his mighty BBQ wares.
- Likewise, The Green Spotlight, for well-researched writeups on sustainable solutions for real people. Lower cal (but for their roundup of organic, fair-trade chocolates), to be sure, but no less worth your while.
- And last, but never least, see The Gurgling Cod, for estimable opinions on food and culture — and obscure references that would make Dennis Miller sweat like Callista Gingrich at the Mütter Museum.
