Back in October 2007, I wrote about the joys of kangaroo. Not only is the meat delicious, but kangaroos don't emit (read: fart) methane, like their bovine counterparts, so they're also environmentally-friendly. Last weekend, The New York Times got on board with kanga consumption.

So here's the trend: reason in 2007, New York Times follows a year later. Sounds about right.

Alas, in The New York Times' 2008 Year in Ideas feature, kangaroo consumption ranks right up there with fast food zoning, and "plants' rights."

There is cool item on the ways "less privacy means less discrimination." Of course, reason was on the upside of zero privacy beat in 2004.
