bacon moderation

Preride yesterday morning. Bacon under the broiler, hashbrowns and eggs in the cast-iron skillet. Bacon is a non-addictive vice, yet tough to eliminate totally from ones life without a religious dietary prohibition.  Eating bacon is a guilty pleasure.  

 What a grand counterpoint to the usual bowl of whole grains and raisins.  Even the dog got a nibble.

Does the Greek virtue sophrosyne apply to the eating of bacon? The painter in William Whartons' Scumbler pointedly smoked six cigarettes a year.

 Read some Plutarch last night.  Heavy hitter.
