Wow, that seems to be the theme this week in my blog roll.
First Gina Spadafori says everything I want to say, and more.
A great essay from Dr. Khuly about DIY slaughter and the ethics of eating animals.
Skepchick asks what species people won't eat, and why.
Slightly related: Fugly Horse of the Day with (yet more) about horse slaughter.
And in my own life: I bought my hunting license, my dad got a deer (and said he'll share! Yay!), I discovered a farm within walking distance that sells cheap free-range eggs, and I made a delicious stew from the lamb that I helped my dad slaughter, skin, clean and butcher.
