Atlantic Monthly on refrigerators

The local NPR program, Boston Public Radio, concluded today's broadcast with a discussion of this article, including info on what commonly-refrigerated foods don't need to be kept chilled. I did not catch the source, but they also aired an audioclip of a French expert proclaiming that cheese is a living thing, and disparaging American-made cheeses as "dead" (the plastic wrapping is a ).shroud and the refrigerator is a morgue). Validity of his opinions aside, it was quite amusing, since he was the very personification of every French stereotype held by Americans.

The article points out that refrigerators are major energy-guzzlers, with American models being larger than the typical appliance in other countries.
