More Katz

I love Jon Katz's work. Katz vehemently protests against anthropomorphism, and in the next paragraph wallows in it. The tension between the logical and mystical elements of his personality makes for great reading. He has a new column on Slate every 4-6 weeks or so, so I've been clicking for the last week, because we're due. I hit pay dirt today: Go find out what happens when donkeys fall down on ice. (Short version: you need a border collie to save them.) Go to the sidebar on the left to read his prior columns. The ones about his steer, Elvis, were splendid.
