In the News "Ferdinand A. Porsche, who designed the original Porsche 911, the snazzy, powerful sports car that became the lasting signature of the German automobile company founded by his grandfather and later run by his father, died on Thursday in Salzburg, Austria. He was 76." I believe only Italians can design beautiful cars (I mean, game over, kids), but there's no denying that the 911 is a true icon. Cars technically don't have a place on OSNews, but Ferdinand Porsche's passing cannot go by unmentioned.

It's so hard to get lamb here (northeast USA) I can't imagine even having a choice. Leg or chop. Where do you shop?

In Grenoble, south-east of France. Here, it is fairly common to find small butchers on the sides of large streets. You pay more there than in supermarkets, but in return you get meat of higher quality, and a much larger choice of body parts.

Due to the increasing popularity of Islam, it gets harder to find a butcher that will sell you pork though, particularly if you live in the poorer districts of a city. But there's still plenty of good stuff to be done with beef, lamb and chicken anyway ;)
