Mark,

I don't see the comment that I wrote about "The Sunset" article?

Two Questions, please:

-May I reply to someone else's annotation on the Butler article?

-If, while trolling through The Highlighter archives, I feel impelled to post a comment should I resist the urge?.

Re: Our Animals, Ourselves

How to tell when you're reading a cup of crap:

-White authors drag black Americans into their prose to make their point

AND

-They make reference to the awful, horrible, terrible, no good, very, very, very bad Donald Trump

Top those two elements with a soupcón of covid fearmongering, and you've got deep-dish bullshit.

Reminds me of the 1970s' movie "Soylent Green" starring Charlton Heston and Edward G. Robinson. Set in the dystopian year of 2022(!), when people were so poor they walked around in ripped clothing(!), thousands slept on the streets(!), and only the elite could afford to eat real meat and fresh vegetables; the masses ate nutrition-less fake food and died of starvation in such numbers that they couldn't all be buried so their bodies were macerated into wafers for the poor to eat.

Amateur prduction values by today's movie-making standards but prescient message.

Mark, another great selection. Just reading Our Animals, Ourselves! Very powerful, mostly for a former veterinarian like me. Thanks again!

"Human liberation and animal liberation are thus bound together; the brutalization of all beings, as Davis proclaimed, is connected. " Just spot on!
