If you follow me on Twitter, you’re going to get – in addition to tweets about New York City, politics, feminism, and the New York Rangers – lots of tweets about cats. And cat rescue. And the treatment of animals in factory farms. And cruelty-free products of various sorts.
You’re also going to get a lot of tweets about horse racing, because when I’m not teaching high school English in Brooklyn, that’s usually what I’m writing about.
Recently NPR’s sports show Only A Game asked me a question that I get asked a lot: if you love animals so much, how can you love horse racing?
