Pigs (was Re: No Anthropology here)

O.K., fine. Let's talk anthropology. I believe I am what is termed
"a nontraditional student." After twenty years out of a college
classroom, I registered for the beginning anthro class (cultural).

I want to be an anthropologist when I grow up. :)

So, tell me about these pigs in New Guinea that the Kapauku Papuans are
busy raising (like, um, why pigs?).

Reviews of Marvin Harris' _Cows, Pigs, Wars, and Witches_ by you
anthropological scholars out there would be welcome.
