Turkey Life

I just ordered a turkey breast from C.'s Fine Meats, a small butcher shop that carries only quality organic meats from local farms. It is implied that the farmers raise Thanksgiving turkeys practically as hand-fed pets, though I gather "free-range" doesn't in actuality signify bucolic bliss.

Still, one hopes the birds' conditions are a bit less concentration-camp-like than those of their cousins who only cost .79 cents a pound, since we are paying enough per pound to put these guys up in a hotel room.
