There's no difference between a calf and an infant
I'm nearly speechless.
I don't want to go on some conservative rant where I say something like, "Despite the problems in our own country, it's important to realize the vast cultural chasm that divides us from the developing countries of the world. I do not believe one could find a similar story or a similar attitude in the United States. And, I believe that is a good thing."
Nor do I want to write some uber-liberal, pantheistic tract like, "We live in such a sterilized, mechanized, unnatural society that such an act of human kindness seems alien to us. This calf is holy. This woman is holy. Nature is holy. We are the aliens and we have lost our way if we cannot recognize this act as holy."
Instead, I will just say that Hollywood is surely creating a movie about this perpetual milk motion machine/human-cow hybrid centipede. And, now, if you will excuse me, I need to take a hot, hot shower.
