Biblical paraphrase

The prophet Isaiah spoke of a coming day of peace and justice when "The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the goat; and the calf and the young lion and the yearling together; and a little child shall lead them."

Obviously, we haven't gotten there yet. But at least in Russia there's a goat that lies down with a tiger (after taking its bed).

I reckon that's a start.

Another beloved Thanksgiving tradition: the annual possum recipe

Thanksgiving is all about tradition and so are we here at Goat Rope. Each year at this holiday, we make it a practice to publish a possum recipe for readers whom we know to be avidly in search of one. And for anyone else who stumbles on the site.

(Disclaimer and disclosure: none of us here at Goat Rope have actually eaten possum at any time nor do we necessarily recommend that you do. But traditions are traditions and we've been doing this for the last 9 years.)

This year, in an effort to be health conscious, we feature a lighter selection, to wit a possum soup recipe we found by way of Google.

Enjoy and happy Thanksgiving!

Something to think about

"Among the innumerable rights claimed by the dominating consciousness is the right to define violence, and to locate it. Oppressors never see themselves as violent."-Paulo Freire
