This lengthy piece is a must-read. It’s as good as good Hemingway, although the style is totally different. After reading a few paragraphs, I wasn’t at all surprised to check the byline and learn it was penned by the Times’ chief art critic.
The story leans more in favor of bullfighting than anyone into protecting animals would like. But there’s some balance here and much that is of interest. Plus, out of nowhere, the author drops a line slamming everyone who eats factory farmed meat.
In any case, I’m betting that bullfighting dies within this generation, killed by progressive politics and, of all things, video games.
This will keep you occupied for a while. I don’t see any reason to post anything else today until I get around to posting my next podcast. Link.
