In Defense of Foodies


In a way-too-long piece (3757 words, I counted) in The Atlantic, author and bloviator B.R. Myers drones on in his The Moral Crusade Against Foodies. While there are those who take anything to extremes, B.R. groups lovers of food into the same category, showing his contempt for all of us. In a world filled with hate, do we really need to find ourselves as the object of this writer’s ridicule? Next time I see his byline, I think I’ll spare myself.
