A shocking abasement of human dignity

Time to play place-the-quote: who said this?

Worst of all from this point of view are those more uncivilized forms of eating, like licking an ice cream cone–a catlike activity that has been made acceptable in informal America but that still offends those who know eating in public is offensive. … Eating on the street–even when undertaken, say, because one is between appointments and has no other time to eat–displays [a] lack of self-control: It beckons enslavement to the belly.

Though it seems like it’s from The Chap magazine, in reality this was said by the GW Bush aide who was put in charge of the Council of Bioethics. The report uses similar social-engineering nonsense to advise against medical research that could save the lives or ease the suffering of millions. Stephen “How the Mind Works” Pinker takes them to task. The republican war on science continues.
