Karen Dawn of sent this out as an e-mail back in August, which I just got today, so I'm putting it up here for anyone else who didn't know about it: "Infinite Jest" author/prodigy David Foster Wallace was asked to cover the Maine Lobster Festival for Gourmet Magazine, and turned in a piece that winds up slamming lobster-eating, and meat-eating in general, by examining and exposing the public's lame rationalizations about animal suffering. The issue of Gourmet isn't online, but Karen Dawn has scanned pages available here. Well worth a read.
