The Sandwich Ultimatum

Here is a piece about tiny traces left behind by meat. It takes up, indirectly, the matter of Meat Rays raised in the previous post. The writer admits that the use of the word ray is imprecise – as is the assertion that All Things Give Off Stuff.

A trace is a skidmark: it is there, on the tarmac.
