That book about NY City rats that I mentioned this morning is by Robert Sullivan--Rats: Observations on the History and Habitat of the City's Most Unwanted Inhabitants.
In case anyone's looking for some light, recreational reading!
Someone else has covered off the death of consumerism today. This leaves me free to talk about chocolate. I really like chocolate. I do not like big-bar commercial chocolate, so Cadbury’s recent decision to make its chocolate even worse (and even more ethically dubious) by putting palm oil in it will not affect me personally as a consumer.
