I continue to really enjoy (in the way one can) Jonathan Safran Foer's Eating Animals. It is a terrifically(!) written book and really makes you think. It's clear what side of the issue fence he falls on but it doesn't feel moralistic to me in the least. Really solid read! In addition, ProPublica recently released this list of food safety reporting it considers exceptional. And, if you missed it, the NY Times' Ethicist (Ariel Kaminer) recently hosted (and took a lot of flak for) an essay contest on the ethics of eating meat. The winning piece is here.
