Quotation Of The Day

From "Taking a Break From War With a Game Anything but Gentle," Dexter Filkins's highly entertaining story from Pushtesurkh, Afghanistan about the sport of buzkashi, in which combatants beat one another's horses and each other for the prize of a beheaded goat:

“I love that meat. All that pulling and stretching makes it very tender.”
--Abdul Bashir, a member of the winning team, as they prepared to roast the goat over an open flame.
