Appetites

In that tangential, apropos of nothing kind of way that you run across things on the internet, I ran across this quote from C.S. Lewis that I wanted to share. It’s an old quote, but like a lot of quotes from Lewis, it seems like it was torn from today’s editorial pages:

You can get a large audience together for a strip-tease act — that is, to watch a girl undress on the stage.  Now suppose you come to a country where you could fill a theatre by simply bringing a covered plate on to the stage and then slowly lifting the cover so as to let every one see, just before the lights went out, that it contained a mutton chop or a bit of bacon, would you not think that in that country something had gone wrong with the appetite for food?
