Day 212

Some quotations do not require commentary.  Contrary to what I tell my students about always having to accompany their quotations with interpretation/explanation/connection to the thesis/analysis (because of a “lazy reader” who requires you to connect it for them), there truly are some quotations that do not need it – there impact is too great.

One of these quotations is from Jonathan Safran Foer’s Eating Animals: “Rendering – the conversion of animal protein unfit for human consumption into food for livestock and pets – allows processing plants to transform useless dead dogs into productive members of the food chain.  In America, millions of dogs and cats are euthanized in animal shelters every year become the food for our food.  (Almost twice as many dogs and cats are euthanized as are adopted)” (27).
