The other red meat

Okay... this is annoying. I've been trying to track down a source for kosher goat meat. Why should that be a problem? Kosher beef, easy. Kosher lamb, almost as easy. I can even find kosher elk and kosher venison. But goat is elusive.

When the Temple is standing, we offer goats and sheep and cows... but only sheep and cows seem to be available as kosher meats these days.

So far, I've managed to find one wholesaler (in New York!) that carries some packaged goat from Minnesota, or South Dakota, or somewhere around there. They're closed for the day, but I'm going to be trying to get ahold of them tomorrow to find out if they sell it to anyone outside of the NY area.

Why is lamb so easy to obtain, and goat so nearly impossible?

I started another blog. Because I've been so good at keeping up with this one, right? Anyway, the blog is devoted to one of my unfortunate addictions:

Comic Geekery

What are the odds that anyone who reads this blog will have an interest in DC comics? Probably not all that different from the odds that the person writing it does. But then... does anyone read this blog in the first place?
