can you tell how old a chicken is?
On Slate's Political Gabfest this week, Emily Bazelon talked about this collection of photographs of old animals in The Atlantic. She found them moving. I do too, a bit. But it's partly - to quite a large extent, actually - because I know they are old. I am not sure I would have known most of them are old from just the photographs. I might have known about this chicken, but I might just have thought it was sick. They're great pictures, though.
