It’s good to be a dog, bad to be a chicken-  A Pennsylvania court finds it’s perfectly legal to abuse and torture chickens and keep them in horrible conditions.  I don’t believe most folks are trying to say "stop eating eggs," but….we should demand humane treatment and conditions for these poor animals.  (yahoo news)

Michael Moore will not be sending PETA a donation-  Well, probably not anytime soon.  Especially after PETA’s president called him an elephant.  I wonder what he did to piss them off?  I guess he’s just alive and that’s all they need.  Oh well, what are you going to do….I did like ‘Sicko" though.

Start Your Own Farm-  But first you need about $1,900 a acre (on average) to get started.  Revitalization into farming and rural America is important to our food system.  Is it time to buy the farm?  (forbes)

Similar To a Trendy Oxygen Bar-  Safeway and other companies like Tyson Foods are being told by Congress to defend their use of carbon monoxide to "treat" meat.  Apparently, Congress didn’t know the FDA approved this practice three years ago, and…we all know that the FDA only approves things that are "safe" for the public.  Carbon monoxide is supposed to retard the spoilage of meat.  I could make a bad joke here, but it would be too easy.

Locavore: the new food fad-  A family boycotts supermarkets and only eats food grown locally….for one month.  Can this be practical?  (

My memory could be playing trick on me due, but I wanted to make a comment on the Michael Moore issue.

I could have sworn when we saw him interviewed on Bill Maher that he mentioned having changed his diet and losing weight to avoid being an unhealthy spokesperson condemning a seriously flawed health care system. I also recall us saying that we thought he visibly lost weight.

Eric (or anyone else) do you remember this?

He did say he was trying to lose weight…but in the movie, he was as big as ever. I think he had cut his hair when he was on Maher. That made him look thinner, but I’m not so sure he actually was. I recall the camera just being focused on his head.

Not to harp on my point, but Michael Moore has lost 30 pounds.
