What the Decline of a Great Nation Looks Like
On the set of “Julie & Julia,” [the upcoming movie about a woman inspired to cook...and write about it...by Julia Child] the lobsters posed a special challenge. Ms. Adams appears to plunge two live lobsters into a pot of steaming water. The steam is actually a cool mist, and just off camera representatives from the American Humane Association monitored the creatures’ health. (emphasis added)
Lobsters are food for goodness sake. They're not people. They're not some kind of higher beings. They are not an endangered species. They're supposed to be boiled...and eaten with drawn butter. What a bunch of wimps we are rapidly becoming.
