We haven’t checked thoroughly, or really at all, but this seems to be the first instance in Time magazine’s 91-year history where butter has gotten its own cover, and they really nailed it. The new story on fats — butter included — follows the magazine’s earlier proclamation that “We’re Living in a Golden Age of Butter,” and Mark Bittman’s “Butter Is Back” announcement in the Times. And more good news: If the honor has previously been given out to “the computer” and the “endangered Earth,” surely this lowly butter curl is one step closer to being named Time’s “Person of the Year.” [Time]
