I love meat but try not to eat too many hot dogs. I don't consider these conflicting viewpoints. I broke down awhile ago and bought a hot dog from a downtown street vendor. I wanted to eat it as quickly as possible since I was starving and didn't want to think about what I was eating. About halfway through my dog, I heard the click of a camera shutter. I turned to look, and a tourist about four feet away had taken a picture of me eating the hot dog. I like photography, but I try not to take pictures of strangers too much as it seems invasive. The guy pretended he was taking a picture of the skyline, but I knew what he was doing. Since then, I've been waiting to see the shot in a magazine article about the dangers of overeating.
