so driving through northern california this week we saw more than a few improbability cows. they were definitely cows. but they were perched on hillsides steep enough to make a mountain goat giddy. which was kinda cool. they were busy turning grass (which humans cannot eat) into milk and beef (which humans can eat). and they were doing it on land that could not be used to grow human food. i know a bunch of vegetarians who would eat meat except it's not green. heh. well, some meat is greener than other meat. which is good. i like steaks. a lot. it's nice to know that when the world's population peaks one can still enjoy a nice grass fed sirloin without feeling like one is stealing food from hungry people. grass doesn't feed people. grass fed beef does.
