kaigou: this is what I do, darling (3 break out of prison)

I was going to say that this reads like an essay that should be handed out for mandatory reading in Freshman college classes -- but it's also one I should probably print out and put on my own wall, just to remind myself about my own fur.

On the difference between Good Dogs and Dogs That Need a Newspaper Smack.

ETA: No, the metaphor is not perfect. Every metaphor will break down at some point, and they do so faster if you try and go literal on them. Yes, there are essays out there that explore more, question more, push more. But as essays go, I think this is one I'd pick for a Freshman Intro, one of several, before moving deeper.

It's an excellent piece, although as usual the lack of Clue in the comments is astonishing.
