This Modern Life Against Reality: One of the more annoying features about modern life is that we have to pretend to believe so many things that are unbelievable because they are not true. For instance, we're supposed to pretend that jokes about people with foreign accents and habits are not funny. Of course they are. Also, we're supposed to pretend that free-range food tastes better than the steroids-n-cages version. So it was nice to read someone admitting that the most popular turkey in America, the Butterball, tastes much better than the politically sound alternatives.
