I love lard, in measure. I love the color and aroma of it, and I love to make it. But for purely personal reasons, I don't share the die hard lipophile's passion for eating it. See, my paternal ancestors, who were all of an Italian demographic that used lard as its primary cooking fat, all "died young" from diet related diseases. That said, I still have to recommend this lard fan blog for it's ebullient endosement of a remarkable, if slightly dangerous, food stuff.
