Even if you don't give a rat's posterior about animal or meat issues, you may want to pay attention to this if you are someone who drinks water: "A federal appeals court on Monday agreed with environmentalists that new federal clean-water rules were not protecting the nation's waters from the manure pollution of large farms. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan said it agreed with environmentalists who claimed in lawsuits that the rules failed to provide meaningful review of plans developed by the farms to limit the pollution." The article goes on to quote Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who as president of the Waterkeeper Alliance says "these regulations were the product of a conspiracy between a lawless industry and compliant public officials in cahoots to steal the public trust."
