    My response to this New York Times article on eating rats (for art) at a gallery on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, in summary:

    * News you can use! “The rats were shipped from a United States Department of Agriculture-approved West Coast processor that supplies pet owners with humanely killed, individually flash-frozen rodents, in classifications ranging from ‘jumbo’ to ‘fuzzy.’”

    * What is “ratpork”?

    * The guests, who paid a whopping $100 per person (and were, no surprise, “mostly friends” of the artist)–had to sign a liability waiver. Bu those rats are USDA certified! What gives?!

    * Who is this Yuri Hart? Someone give him a real kitchen. He’s earned it.
