Frazier on Hogs

I'm not even a third of the way through it, but I have to direct your attention to Ian Frazier's piece in last week's New Yorker about the increasing and alarming spread of hogs in America. I just got done with his nine-paragraph breakdown of how Bush's vote totals in 2004 corresponded quite directly with an area's population of feral wild hogs. The whole piece promises to be a must-read, but that stretch in particular is brilliantly deductive and hysterically obsessive and highly recommended.

The essay also includes the sentence, "Oh, them damned hogs." If you're still waiting for reasons to read it, I can't help you.
