Farm-to-Fork Farm Dinner Fiasco

(Having just gone through ServSafe in addition to being farm raised and (horror of horrors) growing up on farm raised sustenance, this appalled me beyond all belief.)

I will allow that I do not know how the laws in NV differ from MA. HOWEVER! This strikes me as nothing more than someone with a stick up their @$$ and too much time on their hands harassing people who (and granted, this is solely from their POV) were doing nothing wrong. Even the cops couldn't figure out why they were called, and the health official who called them was unable to come up with something to cite, after intimidating the farmers into destroying all the food they were set to serve. (They weren't even allowed to feed it to the pigs or even compost it!)

I just ... I don't get how people can think that adults are incapable of providing our own food in a safe manner and making reasonable, informed decisions about what we consume.

Westboro Baptist Church to Picket Funeral of "Gay-Friendly" Jobs | Mother Jones

You know, there's a lot I could say about this (and a lot I started to say and just deleted), but I will just point out that their original tweet about the picket was via iPhone and was followed later by:

      "Rebels mad cuz I used iPhone to tell you Steve Jobs is in hell.God created iPhone for that purpose! :)"

Soooo, Apple = God and sent their founder to hell?
