The Simpsons & Sociology

1) Why, in your opinion, was the general public so ready for the gritty and more-often-than-not-disturbing-but-wildly-real approach you took in both KC and ACT? These were books that alternated abusing and the reader with the fine details of food preparation and consumption in this country and around the world; was it the confessional culture that we've become that made us crave this "abuse" ("yes, *sob sob* I admit, I ate the bacon and look where it came from!"), or was it just a more globalized and enlightened food culture here that has brought us to want to learn more?
2) Why do the Simpsons rock so hard? Is it the only TV show worth watching anymore?

As far as the Simpsons. Far and away the smartest funniest thing on television--and the font of all truth and wisdom.
