The Trouble with Turkey

I did not eat turkey on thanksgiving, did you? We are not planning to on Christmas either, unless it is a  free  range(organic)one from a reputable free range farm. With the recent news on another huge expansion of Huntingburg-based Farbest Food Inc. turkey processor, southwestern Indiana, it reminded me of POW....

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2010/feb/22/plastic-bags-pay
