Guardian.UK: Should meat be displayed in butcher shop windows?

“In fact, his meat delivery arrives in a van from the abattoir round the time that children are walking back from school, past the butchers. ‘They’re not squeamish at all,’ he says. ‘The whole pig carcasses come off the back of the lorry, and it doesn’t seem to bother them in the slightest. If anything, they’re intrigued, and their parents like it, because they know they’re buying meat cut from the whole carcass.’”  Beats bleach-soaked, gas-pumped shrinkwrapped bits, if you ask me.

My pet peeve is that, since meat is sold by the weight, the meatpackers inject water into it to bulk it up. No thanks, not interested in paying $6/lb for tapwater.

Oops.  You’re right. I meant saline/water, not air.
