This Monday my sister was chased by wild dogs in Paterson, New Jersey. Almost she convinces me to see Passaic Falls.
An interesting book was mentioned last night: 1906's The Criminal Prosecution and Capital Punishment of Animals. In addition to the descriptions of trials of cannibal sows and buggered mules, the book also compares Léon Gambetta's autopsied brain to that of the Hottentot Venus.
You know you want to.
