Eating Crow and Loving It explains the origins off the expression "to eat crow," and offers a program for employing the practice (not only of eating the bird, but other dishes made from the offal of various quadrupeds) to enhance self-awareness. In addition to numerous recommended recipes, the author presents circumstances that might justify or even require the penitential meal be prepared and consumed. In the course of laying out several of these circumstances, the reader is invited to enjoy such observations as are rarely made between the covers of a cookbook.The apparent contradiction between the notions of an all-merciful God and eternal damnation is resolved, and in the process the problem of Theodicy (how can evil exist in a world created by an omnipotent and beneficent God) is answered in perhaps the only way plausible.The nature of Time is illuminated and its modus operandi explained in the simplest terms, and the only explanation offered to date that is sensible.One section explains what to do if you're charged with a crime. It's not the advice your lawyer would give you.Additionally, entertaining episodes are offered involving the great drug show trial of the early '80s, Jackpot; about the DEA's self-given license to violate citizens' rights; about the absurdity of "zero tolerance" and the futility of the War on Drugs. And much, much more.All in all, this book deserves the topmost placement on your toilet's tank.
