Uh, no, actually. I didn't get that sense at all. Mostly it's about  
how haggis has changed, and why. It does include some opinions from  
various people about how some version are considered nasty and what  
people have done to change that impression, and it also covers  
American variants based on difficulty in obtaining things like lungs.  
But none of it is expressed as value judgement on the part of the  
author of the article or the paper.
